 How do you feel about the hidden ball trick?

and why don't we see it more often?

    It's fine but doesn't often work.

    It's amateurish. You don't see it because it won't work.  It's illegal for the pitcher to engage the rubber without the ball.  if the fielder has the ball the pitcher has to stay off the rubber.  runners are taught not to leave the base until the pitcher touches the rubber.  by the major leagues that is as ingrained a habit as spitting.  so it won't work.
