Beating someone up is scary for the person being beaten up, and does that make the person being beat up manly?
Yes, if after he gets beaten up the first time he comes back for a second and gives more than he takes. The same as being afraid the first time you hit and not being afraid the second time.

If I'm being technical, there's nothing in the rules that explicitly says you can't throw the baseball at an opponent, there's just no benefit to it. And the experience I was referring to, since I'm guessing you haven't played baseball, is hitting. When you hit you are in a vulnerable position in that your focus is on hitting the ball, but you can also in turn be hit by it. When you're younger and haven't played as much those two can switch in importance. I for one remember being 10 and having a real kid pitching to me for the first time, and my only thought was "don't get hit, don't get hit, don't get hit." That's the fear I'm talking about.
