Question C League Spats

The team I pitch for is up by 11 runs or so and I hit a double to the wall and the throw comes in a little high to the shortstop and I rounded 2nd maybe a couple steps to make sure he caught it, but was standing upright. The shortstop then turns and rifles a throw head high at me with no chance at getting me out. I cursed at him and the next inning I told him to take his base rather than pitch to him. He complained it was "no fun" to do that and I told him it was no fun dodging useless throws that could hurt someone. They proceeded to intentionally walk me my next at bat and said they won't pitch to me the rest of the year.

I attempted to talk it out with the player after the game to explain I got a concussion and a broken leg the prior summer from bush league plays....but his team just surrounded the situation and didn't care to speak rationally.

This has bothered me all day and I don't know what to make of it. It's not like I took a run at him or tried to bean him with a ball, I just "retaliated" by walking him once to make him think about it. Did I cross a line here and should have just shrugged his throw off as hard-nosed ball?

Even if it's just a bunch of guys playing for fun. Level of play doesn't matter.

your fine, tho2 ways to handle it.

1 take your walks and hope to score

2 requires violence and jail time.

It happens again ask the ump if he is aloud to throw at you, make it the umps issue.

So C-leaguers are just more experienced bush-pilots?

I expect things like that. We are all human and have all made irrational decisions at one time or another. You did egg it on by walking him intentionally knowing most guys are competitive and will pick back and forth at each other never wanting to give in. In hindsight I would have spoken my piece and then pushed the issue of ignoring the entire other team and openly having a little too much fun with my own guys with jokes and mockery. This is how I keep it cool, show no matter what they do they will not get a rise outta me and show both teams what class is all about.
