Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: dead ball out

Being a pitcher myself and playing Major + in the 50's division and also being hit by a line drive at my knucklehead just reacting in the nick of time to save my grill and also being out of the so called safety box I take offense to this silly , dumb rule . No one in our division stands inside that box and pitches he is already ten feet out before the batter swings , so rule loses effect after pitch leaves hand . Having said that , I propose a rule of side retired ,next inning if you hit the pitcher period. Make the penalty worth having and deterring the batter from killing one of us.iIf Two outs already , start next inning with two outs . A penalty worth the batters staying out of the middle . Just my 2 cents worth . #43

I am A pitcher and agree with my friend Joe about the apology thing . I won't even acknowledge you if you apologize I just grab the ball and move on . I was very lucky last weekend in Carson when the Pilchers team thought running up in the box and sending lazers through the middle was funny. Thank God I still have the reflexes to catch those rockets . But one particular middle swinger was aiming at me and took 5 steps towards the middle and sent the hardest fastest line drive at me that in 30+ years on the mound actually gave me a fright , my glove got in front of this missle as my hands shook to react. thats a serious injury blast off a Miken. But then again I took the liberty to hit one back at him and off his leg.And it was also an out cause the shortstop backed the play. Middle is and always will be part of ther game but when the intent is to harm then it is wrong. My response was to tell the umpire if he did not call him out for running out of the box then I would take him out .
