Softball Illegal Pitches: Everything You Need To Know
Apparently there are umps out there who know the game and enforce the rules. Good for them!!! I will say though it did slow down the game and cause some confusion. Learn how to pitch the proper way or learn how to play another position.
Much respect for pitchers that bat. I know there is a risk there and that good pitchers are hard to come by but I love to see complete athletes compete. Jul 9, MadBandit22 said:.

Mar 13, 1, So why were only some called? Oct 1, 28 USA. The lack of consistency in calling it is what makes the whole topic frustrating and bad for the sport Oct 5, 63 8.
How about that an illegal pitch!!!
I forgave Plain for being only a bit removed from Australia but if she has changed her motion at all, it is very little and between her and Barnhill it is ridiculous. They should both watch Fiser of Minn if they want to understand what it looks like to legally pitch with a leap style release. Between the lack of illegal pitches called on Barnhill and Plain and the inconsistent enforcement of slappers out of box foot in river, in front of plate , it is a joke.

Maybe it's time to get the NCAA to start hiring and training all of the officials in every sport so nationwide we can get the games played by the same rules instead of allowing the conferences to hire the officials and then dictating how each conference wants the gameplay to be. It would certainly level the playground which is all real fans of any sport would want.

Just like MLB, a softball pitcher can only throw a pitch once everyone is ready, including the umpire. While this may seem like a lot of rules to follow just for pitching, it's probably stuff that you already naturally do.
