Getting crosschecked in the face is not a natural thing that occurs within the context of a hockey game outside of the accepted level of player on player violence in the game. Conversely any of these guys playing pro baseball has been hit by a baseball almost certainly dozens of times, usually with no ill intent on anyone's part. It's such a common part of the game that you get taught, effectively, to minimize the damage of it by turning your butt or back to it. 9 times out of 10 it stings a bit, or leaves a bruise, and you move on. Getting plunked in the butt isn't a major or consequential penalty for doing something seen by some as disrespectful even if you don't agree with that interpretation.

On one hand, I don't have an issue with teams running up the score. You never give up an opportunity to hit the ball and hit it hard. On the other hand, bunting for a hit feels like scratching and clawing for runs, which you don't need to do when you're up by 9.
