More on the balk rule

More on the balk rule from our Rules Guru: I admit that the idea of a motion naturally associated with a pitch is pretty vague, which is why the rule book tries to define it. The thing about breaking the plane of the rubber is not arbitrary, but has to do with the fact that in a pitch, pitchers generally swing their foot back to this point in order to get more momentum.
