Let the batter fire a baseball at the pitcher.

If a batter gets hit flush, let the batter fire a baseball at the pitcher who hit him. Allow the batter to chase the pitcher and fire it at the pitcher point blank. The pitcher may run away and protect himself with his glove. That might reduce the number of incidents in which a pitcher feels entitled to hit a batter because:
- the batter got a hit
- the previous batter got a hit
- the batter might get a hit
- the batter looked at the pitcher the wrong way
- the pitcher was simply in a bad mood.
