    That is why I don't go to Cubs games. Well that and I am a Cardinals fan! :)

    Don't they have those nets like the i-cubs do?

    Most nets only run from home-plate-side to home-plate-side of the two dugouts. I don't know if I've ever seen any extend past the start of the dugout.

    You have to be paying attention at baseball & hockey games. Especially along the dugouts and going out towards the outfield.

    Indeed. A seven year old isn't capable of paying that much attention or defending himself or evading if need be. I have 6 and 8 year old girls and I wouldn't take seats that close.

    I cant imagine the panic if that were one of my sons. Kids seem to be resilient and Im happy to see that he is improving every day.

    The kid that was injured was invited back to throw out the first pitch today. It seems like the kid is going to recover a 100%.

    I wonder some times if we're all going to have sign a liability waiver to go to a base ball game some day in the future.

    On the back of a ticket there's usually something to that effect, warning about the risks of foul balls and what not.
