Default What do YOU do after shooting the box?

I know this is gonna become a vicious circle. Whether it is accidental or on purpose (you jags that do do it on purpose). Do you have big enough balls and/or respect to at least to yell over "hey sorry pitch" or "hey you ok pitch" after shooting the middle and/or hitting him?

After 20 years of 2 broken legs, one broken forearm, one deadly shot square on my heart this year, shot to knee and countless worm burners to the shins I for one appreciate hearing the hey pitch sorry line. Yes Yes Yes I am fully aware it happens and obviously am well aware of the consequences but man a little humanity goes a long way.

Most the teams around me are pretty good about being cool but every once in a while there is a hardass who thinks its not only perfectly cool to do but also ok to cheer about doing it too. Sometimes I wish for just a day they'd make a rule that whoever is like that to make them pitch a full game to see the other perspective. Most of the guys on my team usually respond with a follow up shot to the other teams pitcher kinda like baseball takes care of itself (thankyou boys on avalanche for that). But speaking from experience that subtle sorry really does go a long way.

How does it work for you out of staters?

If I hit him above the knee I'll apologize, if not then I'll jog to first

I've only actually hit a couple pitchers. Once was on purpose and the other was accident. If it's on accident I'll apologize and not even run to first. If it's on purpose I just go to first and don't say a word.

Usually an "ahh fuck" comes out as I run to first. That can be translated as an "I'm sorry" right?

Agree with above post #4. If its on purpose go to first I might even laugh. On accident I will ask for time and go over to him to see if he's ok.

since I pitch, i do apologize, unless is was to get back at them for hitting at me. Then I get ready for a middle war.
