Heh -- your post reminded me that when I played at that level I seemed to specialize in getting hit by pitches --- one game I got hit three times!
I got to pitch the next time we played them and got to face one of the two pitchers that day that hit me -- I'd told him I was going to pay him back so he was ready when I drilled him on the hip -- he got me with a soft curve -- I didn't have a soft curve -- we're still friends 45+ years later
