He did have his face broken because of the actions (or lack of) of someone else. Actually I think the guy has a case. I've never been to that stadium so I can not comment on the set up. But he got his face broken buying a beer. I would think he has a case vs whoever owns the stadium, though not vs the Vending company.

Fireball, you sound likea lawyer.

If you're at a baseball game, keep your head up while they're playing. It's not like he didn't know he was vulnerable to being hit..........

I'm tired of idiots sueing other people over their own stupidity.......

Maybe the refreshment stands should have been screened off or something.

I hate most law suits and lawyers as well. However some are valid.

Here's one that's somewhat related to baseball (softball). I don't think this guy should be rewarded anything.

I completely agree. ;-D


I read the softball article and I lean toward the catcher's side. If the collision was avoidable, then he should win the case. It's right there in the league's rules. Now I didn't see the play in question, so I can't give an opinion as to if he's right or not.
