This happened in the Caribbean Baseball league a number of years ago. One of the managers took exception with a call that the home plate umpire made and refused to allow his pitcher to pitch the ball to the following batter. After waiting for a couple minutes, the umpire instructed the pitcher to pitch. The manager told the pitcher not to. the umpire then started calling balls. "Ball one.....ball two.....ball three....ball four, take your base. Next batter. Ball one...." Quickly the manager got off the field and allowed his pitcher to pitch.

Is a balk when nobody is on supposed to be called a ball and if it is can someone get walked without ever throwing a pitch?

A balk cannot be called if no one is on base. The essence of a balk is the pitcher is tiring to achieve an unfair advantage over the base runner. No runner, no advantage. If a pitcher, while no runners are on base, commits an action that would have been recognized as a balk if runners had been on base, the penalty for this is a ball. So yes, in theory, you could "walk someone without every throwing a pitch" --- (i.e), if you were on the mound and dropped the ball, that would be a "balk" and result in a ball.. The thing is, it does count on pitch count
