If a pitcher turns or spins off of his free foot without actually stepping or if he turns his body and throws before stepping, it is a balk. A pitcher is to step directly toward a base before throwing to that base, and is required to throw except to second base because he steps. It is a balk if, with runners on first and third, the pitcher steps toward third and does not throw, merely to bluff the runner back to third; then seeing the runner on first start for second, turn and step toward and throw to first base. It is legal for a pitcher to feint a throw to second base.

Baseball Rule Books
The rules of baseball differ slightly from league to league, but in general share the same basic game play. There are several major rules, which differ only slightly. The rules are also published in book form in North America by the Sporting News. Many amateur and youth leagues use the "OBR" with only a few modifications for safety. The baseball rulebook of the National Collegiate Athletic Association NCAA , aside from governing the games of that organization's members, is also used by several other competitions involving college-aged players. For the origins of the game, see Origins of baseball. Unlike many other sports, the Official Baseball Rules have remained mainly static during the modern era of the game.
