As far as I can tell (because it's unwritten) there are two different, opposite unwritten rule issues going on here:
1. If you get hit by a pitch that got away or if you deserved it you rub dirt on it and take your base.
2. If you get hit by a pitch thrown on purpose or at your head, you can charge the mound.
Then there is the pitching side
1. If you intentially pop a guy, you have to stay on the mound while the other guy takes a run at you.
2. If you don't hit the guy on purpose you have to stay on the mound while the other guy takes a run at you.
3. If you're the 1B, you have to intercept the guy running to the mound.
4. If you're in the bullpen, you have to run towards the fight and pretend to protect the pitcher. Even if you don't actually do anything other then show up.
Am I missing any?
I am not privy to your pitching unwritten rules. Only one I know is the overarching "Protect your teammates".
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
