"Hybrid" delivery not being addressed

Recommended Posts

The "hybrid" delivery was supposed to be stopped this year. From the windup for a righty, his left foot cannot be in front of his right foot - thus looking like he is in the stretch, kind of.  We have played 12 games so far and in 7 of the 12, pitchers used this "windup" with nothing being done about it. It was pointed out to the umpire and no response. So is this a rule or no?

If it's from the windup with no one on, why would it matter?  Am I missing something here?

Totally agree - it is with runners on base is my issue. Can't tell if windup or stretch...

If it being used with runners on base, other than on third, I hope the runner steals every time.  Are they taking a step back then completing the delivery to home?
