Baseball tradition calls for a pitcher to protect his teammates. In 1986, Rochester Red Wings hurler Bill Swaggerty took the tradition a step farther. In a game against the Maine Guides, Swaggerty decided the tradition should take in the fans who pay to see the team play.

Corey Snyder of the Guides, in a snit after flying out to centerfield, threw his bat into the stands where it hit a 61-year-old woman and her granddaughter breaking the child’s nose.

On Snyder’s next at bat, Swaggerty wound up and unleashed a wicked bean ball, which hit and decked the batter.

“You can’t let stuff like that go by,” Swaggerty explained after the game.

Good luck Phillies. Opening game is 2:05 p.m., today, against Texas.
