Also see the early part of Batter hit after swing

I quoted this comment by Mike almost verbatim:

"it doesn't appear that the batter attempted to hit the ball, so it can only be a strike if the ball was in the strike zone when hitting the batter "
Officiating takes more than OJT.
It's not our jobs to invent rulings to fit our personal idea of what should and should not be.
