Reply to ""Balk" in PA state high school game"

in NFHS rules, a balk is a dead ball.  You're correct on the MLB rule.  The play is live and if the batter successfully reaches first, the team has the choice of the balk or the actual play that resulted.  In NFHS, under all circumstances, a balk call immediately becomes a dead ball, so anything that subsequently follows is moot.
