No available substitutes

OK, I just want to preface this one by saying I have no freakin' idea what rule code we were playing under. Apparently this tournament was under the umbrella of "U.S. All-Star Baseball," which I have never heard of, and they had a few special rules for the tournament. So I'm assuming OBR for the most part here.

So we're in the fifth inning, 2 outs, score doesn't really matter. B1 swings at a 3-2 pitch and fouls it straight into his eye. And for those that say that it can't happen...well, it happened tonight. Saw it with my own eyes. Long story short, it starts swelling considerably and he can't continue. And here's the problem -- one of the special tournament rules is that you can bat everyone. The offensive team is doing just that. So the only logical choice is to call him out -- 3 outs, inning over. The offensive coach was surprisingly not upset with it, but some of the fans were. Not like it mattered, really -- the team won 8-3.

Have any of you run into this before? If so, what did you do?
