How dare Prince Fielder get so upset after being hit in the thigh with a 90-mph fastball. It is part of the game, you big baby.
How about a quarterback throwing the ball as hard as he can at a pass rusher who is getting to him too much? It is simply not fair when another player is doing well against you.
And hockey players should be able to . . . oh yeah, nothing is really illegal in that sport.
When asked about his hitting Prince Fielder in his butt, Guillermo Mota responded, “I wasn’t trying to hit him. I was just trying to throw inside.”
I’m willing to bet with Fielder at bat, you could make a pickoff throw to first base and still hit Fielder in the butt.
