Whatever you like, but unless the ball is live, it can't be an illegal pitch (balk).

It is implicit in Rick's answer that a quick pitch (balk) is the correct call even if the umpire's hand is up. That is wrong. Rick's last sentence would be correct if 'even' were changed to 'only'....

It's a perfect example of one of the actions the FPSR is intended to penalize. A great ballsy call. It was the second of the game against SHSU. Anyone see the first one?

1. In your case, the ball is dead when the pitch is caught (OBR). It's immediately dead on the balk (NFHS). Move the runner, cancel the pitch (both).

2. No (both).
