Getting hit by a pitch is no fun. But Jose Offerman took his displeasure to another level. In a game against the Bridgeport Bluefish in August 2007, Matt Beech hit Offerman with a pitch. Offerman then rushed the mound with his bat and took two swings at Beech, breaking his finger, and took another swing at catcher Joe Nathans’ head, giving him a concussion. Offerman was thrown out of the game, suspended indefinitely, and charged with two second degree assault charges.
