Rule 8.05(e) Comment: A quick pitch is an illegal pitch. Umpires will judge a quick pitch as
one delivered before the batter is reasonably set in the batter’s box. With runners on base the penalty is
a balk; with no runners on base, it is a ball. The quick pitch is dangerous and should not be permitted.
