Seems like an odd way to put it. I'm no lawyer but this seems like criminal recklessness to me.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I thought he had punched the manager first, but once I found it was a ball.

I mean he shouldnt even be in baseball if he cant even hit a dougout. with a baseball.

Thats just poor playing there. he faces a felony of battery or assault i believe.

I can't recall the last time I saw two managers going at it like that AND the umpires did absolutely nothing to stop it. I feel they failed in preventing this thing from escalating to the degree it did. Too bad Ryne Sandberg was away as well...

Here's a little blurb, from the Tribune, about the incident.
DAYTON, Ohio - A minor league pitcher accused of throwing a ball that hit a fan in the forehead during a bench-clearing brawl was charged with felonious assault, ordered held on $50,000 bond and directed to surrender his passport.
Peoria Chiefs pitcher Julio Castillo was arrested Thursday following a fight between the Class-A Chiefs and Dayton Dragons. Umpires ejected 15 players and the teams' managers after the 10-minute brawl ended.
Video from the game shows the 21-year-old Castillo angrily throwing a ball, but doesn't show where it landed.
Police identified the fan as Chris McCarthy, 44, of Middletown, and said he was hit in the forehead, the Dayton Daily News reported. Fans told police that McCarthy was knocked senseless and became incoherent.
Castillo was arraigned by video from the Montgomery County jail on Friday and ordered held on bond. Dayton Municipal Judge Carl Henderson also required Castillo, who is from the Dominican Republic, to give up his passport.
"This charge is a result of outlandish and inexcusable conduct by a professional baseball player," Montgomery County Prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr. said in a statement.
If convicted, Castillo would face up to eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
