My friend and I were having an argument about a pickoff rule. And I thought this community could provide me with an answer. When there is a runner on third and you pickoff to third you must throw the ball. Correct? If that is true why is it legal to do a third to first pickoff without throwing the ball if while you are on the rubber you are doing the same thing?
Also what is your favorite "rule" to exploit in baseball? With all the talk about Larussa using the rules to his advantage with streets number of pitches etc, what is a rule that is taken advantage of or should be?
