That's all we got? One hit by pitch?

HBP of note: June 17, 2009

Prince Fielder was the only batter hit by a pitch yesterday, getting hit by Cleveland pitcher David Huff, who had never hit a batter before. Fielder has been hit 43 times in his career, and 5 times this season. It was the 12,532nd HBP recorded by a batter who was born in California... so that probably means something if you understand the historical significance of the number 12,532. (I'm not saying there is any historical significance to the number 12,532, but if you know of any, and understand it, then it probably means something).
