An illegal pitch is a balk. I do not believe that if the pitcher does not stop (from the set position) when there is no one on base, it's nothing.

n the set position, he shall stand with his entire non-pivot foot in front of a line extending through the front edge of the pitcher’s plate and with his entire pivot foot in contact with or directly in front of the pitcher’s plate. He shall go to the set position without delay and in one continuous motion; he shall come to a complete and discernible stop, which does not include a change of direction with both hands in front of his body and his glove at or below his chin.

You have nothing when there is no one on base and the pitcher does not stop.

The picture must come to a complete stop not a pause according to the video

The correct term out of MLB school is the pitcher must come to a "discernible stop" and that puts it in the umpires decision, a good thing. (not a 3rd base coach, lol) A change of direction is not a discernible stop, balk. A consistent borderline quickness to the plate from a pitcher struggle, should not be called, just a quick come set from the umpire should work, you will know when he is trying to cheat and help the catcher, that's the one you gotta get boys, enjoy, :),

Stop as shown on the video is a better description than pause

I like the word Stop instead of Pause. Good video!
