stick8 - There's kind of code of ethics in it for me. Much like you'll screen a goalie and have him see it a blink before it gets to him, you don't mess with him physically as he's doing it. I play in the infield and get the analogy but it sure seems like there's more time to adjust there. Just know that most of the guys I play with and against understand it (and don't like it) but it happens. We're not trying to hit the pitcher.

Was notified about this discussion from another player on our team. I don't use a code name and had to add the number because someone else uses it too. I do believe I am one of the players in question about hitting the pitcher. I hit the pitcher twice in the championship games. Believe me, it was unintentional! When you have two strikes (both times) you have to hit where it is pitched. Very rarely do I hit it above the knee level when I go that direction. Nobody feels worse about it than me and you can take that or leave it but if you know me, you know I'm speaking the truth. I never play that way and I don't believe in it. Sometimes it happens. The only thing that would make me feel worse from the situation is if my own pitcher got hit because I hit their's. You can't cut that part of the field out. It's one thing to blast it up the middle and another to hit it on the ground. I relayed an apology both times and apologized after the game to the pitcher face to face.
