The Pickoff Throw Rule and the 2023 Season
In 2023, baseball implemented a new rule that limits a pitcher to only three pickoff attempts during a plate appearance. If on the third attempt the pitcher fails to make an out, a balk will be called.
With the version 12b patch installed, you can enable the new rule using the "Pickoff throw limit" option found on your League or Organization's Rules/Options page. This option will be enabled by default in the 2023 season database.
To play the 2023 season and utilize this new rule, it will be necessary to have the version 12b patch installed.
If you don't already own the Diamond Mind Baseball: Version 12 game you can buy the game together with the 2023 Annual Season Database and save $10 off the total price. Add both items to your cart and enter the shopping code NEW2023BUN on the checkout page to apply the discount.
