Even if there is precedence and the rules clearly state that he sits out the next game
The commish/manager just called me asking about the time of our next game. Then, he smoothly brought up the issue. I just said that the rules are the rules and that someone could have been hurt when he threw the bat. My catcher has partial vision is his eye as it is. After a few seconds, he agreed and we left it at that.
