Jose Offerman, now playing for the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League, denied hitting Bridgeport Bluefish players Matt Beech and John Nathans with his bat, according to published reports.
Offerman admitted to charging at Beech with his bat but claimed that Beech and Nathans fabricated other details of the incident.
"I ran to the mound with the bat in my hand, but my intention wasn't to hit anybody," he told the paper. "The catcher just made it up that I hit him in the back of the head, and I didn't hit the pitcher either."
Offerman, who led off the contest by homering off Beech, believes he was intentionally hit in his second at-bat.
"The first pitch, I hit a home run," said Offerman, who was suspended indefinitely by the Atlantic League on Wednesday. "When I got to the plate the next time, the catcher said why was I running the bases so (slow) - that I had to be quicker.
"At first, I didn't think anything of what he said. But later I realized the pitcher was planning to hit me."
