The pitcher uses an illegal glove.

If a player uses an illegal glove, the ball becomes dead after completion of the play. After it has been determined the player is using illegal equipment, the coach of the team at bat has the option of taking the result of the play or the award of three bases from the position(s) at the time of the infraction. The glove must be replaced immediately.
