    Some people...the kid was 11! Stupid lady probably wasn't paying attention. People like her just need to stay away from sports. Probably the same lady who sued McDonald's for getting coffee too hot.

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    If you ever get the chance to watch this documentary, do it. There is so much about this that I didn't know.

    HOT COFFEE, a documentary feature film

    Re: 11 year old Little Leaguer sued for injuries

    I would actually like to see the outcome from this...the nerve of some people, and the fact they are requesting a jury trial? Ha! Because they know there isn't a judge in his right mind that would award them ****.

    Re: 11 year old Little Leaguer sued for injuries

    good - it's about time these little bastards be held accountable for their actions. It isn't hard to throw the ball back to the pitcher. I got so sick of having to chase the ball down or bend over to scoop a 45 ft throw from the dirt because the catcher was too lazy to stand up to throw. Good for this lady, maybe this will spur catchers to learn how to throw.


    read this post quickly - it might not last long

    Pretty sure there's legal precedent for this. If you are at the ballpark, the law presumes that you know the risks associated with the activity, i.e., flying bats, balls, etc.

    They would have to prove the kid did it on purpose, which is possible, I guess, but doesn't seem too likely.

    Is the line already formed, or do I just walk up and knock you down?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I would hope that money could be raised for a defense fund just so they can be put in their place. If $300k+ can be raised for a lady bullied by school kids, then I would hope some cash could be raised for crap like this.

    She does seem like the kind of woman that a kid would want to throw a baseball at though, so she has that going for her.
