Stopping Mid-Windup


Lawrence Siedenburg from Las Vegas, NV asks:

If a pitcher is in his wind-up and ready to pitch the but stops before the pitch with no runners on base is it called a ball?

No. With no runners on, if a pitcher stops mid-windup then it is just a no pitch. Of course, if this happened with runners on base then it would be a balk.
