    This is stupid. I heard how many stories when I was a kid of kid killed by a foul ball, kid killed by a line drive, kid killed by a pitch. Just saw a video on the news a few weeks ago of a bird that got hit by a pitch. Nobody sued the bird. It lived and nobody hauled it off to the hospital for psychological evaluations. Stupid stupid stupid.

    Who wants to make a bet its the mother suing and not the father? Nothing can erase a man's love of baseball except another strike.

    I played baseball from young kid through high school. It would be a sad day that baseball was turned into a Nurf sport. Why don't they sue themselves for not teaching their kid how to catch?

    While I feel sorry for the kid, EVERYTHING in life has risks associated with it. What's the next lawsuit going to be? The sun was too bright and caused the person to blink, at which time he tripped over an earthworm crawling across the sidewalk?

    I have seen it many times, the grieving parents (or offspring) get really angry when they lose a family member from an "accidental" (i.e., not natural) cause and they take the only legal action available to them.. contact a lawyer and sue. I wonder if they could impose a cooling off period to avoid frivolous suits?

    If you don't want to take any risks... sit at home and read books, every day, all day, for the rest of your life, or don't blame anyone if you get injured playing a game that's been around for over 150 years...

    Woah, books are dangerous. You could get a nasty paper cut and go down.

    Better make it digital books.

    I can answer this one ..... it's because numerous people have been arguing for years that too many 'kids' (in particular) have been killed due to the use of aluminum bats and there are many people that want them banned for use by kids, especially high schoolers. The reason, even studies by the 'manufacturers' show , that there have been more deaths due to aluminum bats because they will hit balls harder, faster and further. In particular, pitchers have been the most often hit and killed.

    So, they are filing lawsuits, etc. and everything else they can to get attention to the subject. Suing Lousiville however, seems rather stupid to me ... it's not their fault for making them.

    But, I do see the argument myself and agree with them banning the use of them in youth leagues. I've seen 13 yr olds drive a ball so fast and so hard into a field player that they had no chance to even get their glove up, and do major damage to them (hit in the head). But, I don't see filing lawsuits nor blame that should be placed on Lousiville Slugger.
