Ah, the brush-back pitch or the retaliatory HBP. Many would say that
this is just part of the game. I played Little League about a million
years ago (I think I still have a trophy from '71 when out team won the
league championship). I remember a couple of brush-backs and one HBP.
Didn't think much of it at the time but that's far different than a Big
League 100+ mph fastball.
