Why is crow hopping illegal in softball?
When a pitcher actually strides forward (usually leaping in the process), replants her pivot foot and pushes off with it as she releases the ball, this is an illegal “crow hop.” The reason this is prohibited is it effectively gives the pitcher an opportunity to pitch from a much closer range than she would otherwise.
What are illegal pitches in softball?
The five most common called illegal pitches in softball are crow hopping, re-planting, stepping outside the pitching lane, a pitcher’s back toe losing contact with the rubber, and for the younger pitcher’s failure to present hands apart when stepping onto the rubber.
Why is crow hopping illegal?
This method is difficult for umpires to recognize. That pitch is also known as the “crow drag” or the “slide.” The creep can result from a pitcher’s honest attempt to keep the pivot foot on the ground, or it can be an intentional act to disguise that form of the crow hop. Either way, the pitch is illegal.
