FED pitching regs

Two quick points.

FED rules.

Situation #1: Bases empty. From the wind-up position, the pitcher begins his delivery, catches his spikes on the rubber, stumbles, and fails to complete the delivery.

Ruling?

Situation #2: Bases empty. From the wind-up position, the pitcher accidentally drops the ball while in contact with the rubber.

Ruling?

Easy - I know. But I'm curious if there are any differences of opinion.

Situation 1 - Did he release the ball?

Situation 2 - ball

OK, in Situation #1, let's say he aborts the pitch and does not release the ball. That was my original intent.

This thread is already heading in the direction I suspected it would go.

For Situation #1:
jumpmaster seems to indicate his ruling would depend on whether the stumbling pitcher actually released the ball.

DG says it's "nothing".

Tim C says it's a "ball" awarded to the batter.

For Situation #2:
jumpmaster says "ball"

DG says it's "nothing".

Tim C says "ball"

Interesting.

Would the following statement be accurate with regards to FED pitching regulations?

Anything the pitcher does that would result in a balk with the bases occupied; would result in a "ball" awarded to the batter if there are no runners on base.

In the FED case book, if the pitcher drops the ball and it does not cross a foul line it is a no pitch. I don't have my books here but I'll find it when I get home.
