Says dchetlin:

There's no such thing as a catcher's balk; you made it up. A balk is when the pitcher deceives the base runners by interrupting his pitching motion so that he can throw to one of the bases instead. The penalty is that the base runners are each awarded an extra base. But the batter never advances to first on a balk.

The seven you listed is the same as what I came up with. a referred me to a web page that purported to list ten, but I decided that three of them were no good. (The best of the lot was that the batted ball might hit a runner, but I believe that's scored as a hit regardless.)

I guess this has nothing to do with Perl. Maybe I'll get on the worst nodes list!

    Dan has graciously brought to my attention rule 4.03(a), "The catcher shall station himself directly back of the plate. He may leave his position at any time to catch a pitch or make a play except that when the batter is being given an intentional base on balls, the catcher must stand with both feet within the lines of the catcher's box until the ball leaves the pitcher's hand."

    And then follows the following annotation: "PENALTY: Balk."

    So there's a good case for my being wrong.

    Regardless, you still can't reach base on it.
