i’m a pitcher and when i hit a kid i don’t always pitch as well for the rest of the inning (usually when i hit the kid i get taken out from pitching after the end of the inning…if i make it that far.)
Here’s an example
I was pitching one game and doing ok but not that good since the other team had some players that crowded the plate and I didn’t want to hit them or anything but they wouldn’t move at all. And then this little kid probably like 11 (in a 13 year old league) gets up n is pretty short. it was 3-2 and i accidently hit him inthe head but he had a helmet n it wasn’t a fast pitch either. like 2 batters later (i think) this really big fat kid comes up to the plate n i was throwing them pretty close inside and i tried throwing one outside and it was just a wild pitch n that stupid 11 year old kid got 2 third and i was getting pissed since he wasn’t even supposed to be there and was like 4 feet tall at the most. and i went to throwing them inside again and i hit him right in the face n broke his nose. he didn’t move at all but gave a weird face to the ball as it was coming closer to him n smack right in the nose. i was a bit shaken up since i just broke the kids nose not meaning to but was taked out of the game since i walked the next 2 batters straight with 4-0 counts.
So i guess the question would be how do u deal with it? cause i’ll hit the kid and when i do usually something bad happens to him.
