    Baseball Told the Right Way
    In-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!

      Now, I'm no lawyer..........
    A man is suing the Florida Marlins after he was hit in the face by a thrown ball. In Game 4 of last year's World Series Juan Pierre threw a warm up ball into the stands and it hit 44-year old Steve Badillo in the face.

    First question: Why is he suing them now? Why did he wait a year? Interesting, he says,
    Badillo said Friday he fears his vision is damaged, which would make his work in the printing-press business difficult.
    Obviously the printing press Badillo works at doesn't print ticket stubs for Major League Baseball. Because if they did, Badillo would know that on the back of every ticket is a disclaimer.

    Here's what it says on a ticket stub for a recent game, not the Marlins, but I'm embarrassed to say what team, so anyways, it says,
    The holder assumes all risk and danger incidental to the game of baseball inluding specifically (but not exclusively) the danger of being injured by thrown bats and thrown or batted balls and agrees that the participating clubs, their agents and players are not liable for injuries resulting from such causes.
    Is that not clear enough? I don't get it, people like this turkey are the reason why its generally accepted that going to law school is a good idea.

    I bet he wins the suit, collects some ridiculous sum of money, and next season Major League Baseball installs hockey-style enclosures to "protect" the fans.

    Forget that, let's idiot-proof the whole world while we're at it. Baseball is a great place to start. We can play baseball in a glass enclosure. We can even put seats on top of it like the Thunderdome. Nobody will get any souveneirs, but then idiots like this clown, who go to a game and don't pay attention, won't get injured.

    Though, I suppose we'd have to give them seatbelts too. Or else Badillo would jump to his death and sue the stadium builders for building something that was tall enough for him to fall off and hurt himself.
