And we did. There weren't any problems for the rest of the game.
I think you handled it perfectly.

It does look like the pitch in the OP does glance off the batter's helmet. That seems odd. Was the pitcher trying to bean the batter? That doesn't make sense. Maybe he was aiming for the ump's head and the batter just got in the way? Either way, probably a good thing that the batter's helmet absorbed some of the impact. I hate kids like that.
