Yes, it is a balk if any defensive player positions himself in foul territory. This call is often missed by umpires so you may need to remind them of the rule and penalty.

Can the third baseman be called for a balk like the first baseman?

Rule 8.05 makes it clear that only a pitcher's actions can result in a balk. Rule 4.03 states that all fielders -- not just the first baseman -- must have both feet in fair territory at the start of the pitch, but penalties are not specified in this rule. An umpire could issue a warning, an ejection, maybe even call a balk if the pitcher made a pitch with a fielder there. But it would STILL be a balk on the pitcher.
