What is a good time for catchers throw from home to second base?

When the runner on first steals to second base and the pitcher has already pitched the ball, the catcher should throw the ball from home to second to get the runner who is stealing out. ^^^lololol no. Unless the pitcher's throwing a fastball the runner has a good chance of making it.


If their is a guy on 1st and 3rd where does the pitcher back-up?

That would depend on the play. If there are men on first and third and no outs and the batter hits a fly ball that looks like it could be a sacrifice fly, the pitcher will back up home because he will expect the outfielder to throw the ball to home plate after making the catch. If there are men on first and third and the batter hits a single to right field, the pitcher will back up third base just in case the runner on first tries for third and the right fielder makes a poor throw.

Can a bulk if third or first base man are in foul territory?

I'm going to answer the question, "Can a bAlk be called if either the first or the third baseman are in foul territory?" as well as "Can a balk be called if the runner on first or on third base are in foul territory?" A balk is called whenever the pitcher makes an illegal throw or pitch. Basically, if a pitcher moves his front foot toward a base (including home plate), it must be that base that the pitcher throws the ball towards. The location of the either the runner or the fielder is completely irrelevant to whether or not the pitcher committed a balk.
