Did You Know . . . ?

  • 30 foot pitchers foot foul
    Foul - (Foot Foul) This occurs when a pitcher steps on or over the foul line, or starts or steps completely outside of the pitching platform area, before the shoe is released. The penalty is to declare the shoe a foul shoe. (See pages 13, Rule 5, Section B, 1 a.b)

    The pitching platform area also has side boundaries. Stepping toward the middle of the courts before releasing the shoe is a foul shoe pitched. It would be the same as a 40 foot pitcher stepping into the clay before releasing the shoe.
