If I am reffing:

In any type of a tournament where the rules do not specify otherwise I am calling you out. The rules I am familiar with state you cannot discard equipment besides pods (some even specify empty pods).

In rec ball I am picking your maker up and waiting for you to return. I don't need to have someone run into it and damage it or steal it. I think that type of trickery is right along a dead man's walk. It may be technically legal in some places but its not within the intent of the game. Most fields, after seeing the problems successful dead man's walks have created, have banned them. Obviously I am assuming that it is banned when I make this judgement call.
