*Rule 6.02(a)(5) states that a balk occurs when, "the pitcher makes an illegal pitch." Rule 5.07(a)(1), concerning Windup Position, and 5.07(a)(2) concerning Set Position both state, "Any natural motion associated with his delivery of the ball to the batter commits him to the pitch without alteration or interruption." Because F1 Rea altered his natural motion during delivery, the pitch was illegal pursuant to 5.07(a), and, thus, a balk pursuant to 6.02(a)(5).
