What is considered good etiquette on hitting up the middle or too close to the pitcher?

Slo-Pitch Reddit - Wed, 07/18/2018 - 08:03

Just a bit of backstory here, this past Sunday I was playing a double-header in my co-ed slopitch league. Early in game 2 one of my teammates hit the ball and it came a little too close to the pitcher for his liking. It didn't hit him. He chirped at our batter, and our batter apologized and slowed down running on the way to first, practically gave the other team the out. Pitcher kept chirping but it ended there.

A few innings later I was up to bat, and I hit a hard liner right back at the pitcher (unintentionally). It hits his leg and he throws a little temper tantrum while I'm on my way to first instead of playing the ball. Our runner going to second is confused and thinks the play is dead. His teammate throws to second and gets the call, another free out.

The pitcher is fuming and throwing a tantrum, so when the play is actually dead I walk over to him with my hand out and attempt to tell him it wasn't intentional and I'm trying to offer a handshake and an apology. He swats my hand away and continues his tantrum that we're trying to hit him on purpose and we're a bunch of assholes and he's going to get hurt because of us. This escalates into a shouting match between me and him because I'm not trying to hurt anyone. His team is silent and says nothing, same with the umpire. My team pulls me away and the game goes on.

A few innings later I'm up to bat again and I hit a solid line drive to center field, with the ball going a good 8-10 feet over the pitchers head. He shoots me a dirty look and as I'm rounding first his first baseman says to me "See that's exactly what he's talking about you know."

I'm just done at that point, they're trying to tell me I can't hit it to center anymore. Usually when someone hits a comebacker you just say "Sorry pitch" and move on, but these guys are trying to tell me where I can and can't hit the ball.

I'm not trying to hurt anyone. Is this a thing people run into often? Am I wrong here?
