Regarding the if actions in baseball brawls should be prosecuted, I found this interesting:

2008: The Chiefs and Dragons bench-clearing brawl, which results in 15 players being ejected, although some will be allowed back into the game so that the teams could complete the Midwest League contest, starts when Peoria right-hander Julio Castillo fires a ball toward the Dayton dugout, causing both teams to charge the Fifth Third Field. The 20 year-old Dominican starter will be arrested on a felony assault charge because his errant throw ricochets into the crowd, hitting a male fan
(from http://viewfromthebleachers.com/blog/2015/06/24/yesterdays-news-denorfia-saves-the-day-fowler-is-back/)

So when a player involultarily hits a fan with a ball during a brawl, this might be a criminal offense and might get the player arrested.
