HJ, the base runner was at second base when the the batter walked. First base was open. Umpire called ball 4, batter went to first base and ball was thrown back to pitcher. Runner at second could not advance and was just milling around waiting for the pitcher to get in position to pitch to the next batter.

Gary 19, yes they did. Actually there was quite a heated arguement about the situation and thats why I'm inquiring as to what happens to the state of the game in a situation such as this. I haven't played softball as much as most people but I can remember always being told to throw the ball back into the pitcher, who had to be reasonably close to the pitchers mound, and that would effectively stop play. Play would then resume with the next pitch. Can you help me?

Senior Slowpitch Softball, another time-out/stop play situation.
With 1 out, a runner on second base, batter walks. Ball is thrown back to the pitcher. Meanwhile the runner at second base is casually walking around the base waiting for the next pitch to be made. Can the pitcher throw the ball to the second baseman in an attempt to "pick-off", if thats the correct terminology, before making a pitch to the next batter? I was always under the impression that throwing the ball back to the pitcher, at the pitchers mound, while waiting for the next batter was like calling an unofficial 'Time Out'. And until the next pitch to the batter was made, this stoppage of play was still in effect. Had a big brawl over this one. Any references to any ASA rules concerning this situation would be appreciated.
Thank you.
