You’re up to bat and the pitcher and you have had words in the past. He’s not exactly a nice guy - no, in fact he’s a poster child for nut case-on-a-stick.
So, he looks at you and says … " I bet you couldn’t hit a bowling ball if it was rolled to ya!"
Which in turn you reply …" Oh yeah butter-cup, roll one and let’s see."
So, he does. The pitcher actually roles the ball to you on the ground, and as it comes closer to you, it starts to hop on some infield lumps of grass, then bounces off the toe of your front spike, and comes to a rest right next to you.
Do you get a base? Do you get a ball count? Is it a no pitch? Or is the pitcher now trying for the ole 2 pin - 10 pin split?
