So when I said they should allow people to get beaned with the ball to be out in baseball I didn't know it used to be a rule.
In speech class some guy gave a speech on the history of baseball (not as boring as watching a game, btw) and said they made that an illegal move (throwing baseballs to get them out, I mean) in ____. He named the year but I can only nail it down as far as "late 1800s to early 1900s" because I am unwilling to Google it.
I don't feel totally ripped off from my creative moment (100 or so years too late) because I still have yet to hear about anyone carrying bats around to keep it safer and more interesting.
