Pitching rules
From the 2022-23 rules summary:

Pitcher may take one step while keeping pivot foot in contact with pitcher’s box but does not have the below language found in the entire

rule "until the pitched ball leaves the hand".

There is a heated argument in our LL that they do not have to have the pivot foot remain in contact with the box.

A pitching instructor is teaching that the pivot for must remain in contact with the pitchers box until the ball leaves the pitchers hand.

Is that the correct interpretation of the rule.. seems straight forward to the most of us!

E. The pivot foot must remain in contact with the pitcher's box until the pitched ball leaves the hand. If a step is taken, it can be forward, backward, or to
the side, provided the pivot foot is in contact with the pitcher's box and the step is simultaneous with the release of the ball.
