Hanshin Tigers batter Ryota Arai calls for time-out, opposing pitcher throws at him (Video)

One of baseball's unwritten rules has to be that when a batter calls for a time-out, the opposing pitcher has to stop his wind-up and not deliver the ball.

However, Bryan Bullington of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp decided to not follow that rule in a Nippon Professional baseball game against the Hanshin Tigers.

As Tigers batter Ryota Arai calls for time-out during his at-bat in the seventh inning, Bullington doesn't acknowledge the stoppage of play and throws right at Arai:

If Bullington's name sounds familiar, he was the first round draft pick of the MLB's Pittsburgh Pirates back in 2002.
