This is scary. During Monday night’s Cubs vs.Pirates game, a fan standing behind home plate caught a Starlin Castro foul ball in the back of the head and then goes down...

The ticket holder also presumes that the ballpark will present proper protection behind home plate. Id go to arbitration.
But what court would rule in favor of the team? You think that patron would buy tickets in that section if they knew 90+ mph foul balls are going to come hurling at them periodically, and they may are may not be protected depending on how loose the net is?
The net maker, the installer, the park itself.. A case could and probably will be made.

Why do they even put up the net? If injuries aren't a concern.

It's bad publicity when people start getting knocked out and dying in your ballpark.

actually.. her ticket says she takes on any and all liability when she enters the stadium and agrees not to sue for injury. Its not basically every ticket to every stadium. Most parks will pay something but if the fan gets too pushy/threatening they will take it all the way.

Right, because if she would have been facing forward that would have been better :rolleyes:

That's what you get for turning your back to the action at a live sporting event.

Well there is a lawsuit. How can they make the netting loose enough that it allows the ball to contact fans.

Shitty installation or design. Somebody is going to pay for that
