Not much of a mod...

...but I modified the balk calls to make them more descriptive. To put this in, go into your data/text folder in OOTP, open english.xml, and replace category 17 with the information in this little file. Kind of complicated, but hopefully it's worth it. Balks get called for a reason, peoples!

Syd,

I grabbed some of the good bits from this file and put them into the text database, so the next time a fresh XML file is released, everyone will get the benefit of your work.

I stayed away from the entries that mentioned the pitcher using the stretch, since I'm not sure we can make the assumption that a pitcher doesn't ever use his full windup when there are runners on base.

Thanks for the minimod.

No problem, although I might want to further adjust those to eliminate references to "the stretch" because I think I added one entry per balk rule (not coming to a full stop from the stretch might have gotten 2 because it's a pretty common call).

If it will help, here's a copy of category 17 as it exists in the database right now. If you want to do some more tweaking, post your observations here. Also be aware that I can add new entries, so you don't have to work within the entries that already exist.

Ignore the [E] and [D] that precede each text object. . . .
