Does a pitcher have to pause when on the mound when throwing to first base?

Yes. When there is one or more runners on base, it is mandatory for the pitcher to hold his arms to his side before entering his Setup Stance. When entering Setup Stance, he must hold the baseball with both hands and come to a complete stop before throwing to any base, including pitching. However, if the runner wanted to be stupid and decided to run before the pitcher completes his Setup, he can throw the ball.


What is pitching from the stretch?

Pitching from the stretch occurs when there are runners on base. When there are no runners on base the pitcher will use a full windup to throw the ball. In other words, once the pitcher starts the windup he does not stop before throwing the ball. But when there are runners on base, the pitcher will start a windup and then stop and look at the baserunners in an attempt to keep them close to the base before he throws. When the pitcher stops to look at the runners, this is called the stretch position.

What does knuckling a ball mean?

A knuckle ball is thrown when a pitcher hold the ball, not with his fingers fully extended, but bent such that only the "knuckle" of the fingers is touching the ball when released. When done right -- and it is not an easy pitch to throw correctly -- the ball will have very little spin. As such, the ball can go just about anywhere before it reaches the plate, depending on how the wind is blowing. When a good knuckleball pitcher is throwing well, batters will be flaying at the ball almost helplessly, as even the pitcher has no idea what it will do as it heads towards the catcher.

Why do they throw the ball around the horn after a third strike when did it start?

Throwing the ball around the horn allows the fielders to stay focused and gives the pitcher time to prepare for the next hitter. There are several formulas to how the ball should be thrown around the infield, however the only real rule for a ball being thrown around the horn is it must end at 3rd base before being given back to the pitcher.

What is pitch time?

In baseball, the time of pitch is that instant when the pitcher has begun his pitching motion and, by the rules, has committed himself to throwing the pitch. This instant thus occurs before the pitcher actually releases the ball. Once a pitcher commits himself to throwing a pitch, it is illegal for him to return to his set. If that happens, he is charged with a balk, and any baserunners are allowed to advance a base. A baserunner's time-of-pitch base is the base which he has last legally reached at the time of pitch.
