Runners May Not Leave Base Early
Rule 8-1-4a states runners may advance with liability of being put out when
   a. The ball leaves the pitcher’s hand on the delivery
   b. A thrown ball or fair batted ball is not blocked.
   c. A thrown ball hits an umpire.
   d. A legally caught flay ball is first touched by any defensive player.
   e. A fair ball strikes an umpire or a runner after having passed a fielder other than the pitcher, and provided no other fielder had a chance to make an out, or when a fair batted ball has been touched by a fielder, including the pitcher.

The base umpire is responsible for observing runners leaving before the ball is pitched. If a runner leaves early the runner should be declared out and there is no pitch.
