<P _extended="true"><STRONG _extended="true">WAYNE, N.J.? A New Jersey couple, whose son was struck in the chest with a line drive, is planning to sue the maker of a metal baseball bat used in the game.[/b]<P _extended="true">Two years ago, Steven Domalewski was pitching when the ball slammed into his chest and stopped his heart. He was resuscitated but now has brain damage and is severely disabled.<P _extended="true">The family contends metal baseball bats are inherently unsafe for youth games because the ball comes off them much faster than from wooden bats. The lawsuit will also be filed against Little League Baseball and a sporting goods chain that sold the bat.<P _extended="true">An attorney says Domalewski will need millions of dollars worth of medical care for the rest of his life.<P _extended="true">The bat maker says while it sympathizes with Steven and his family, the bat is not to blame for the injury.<P _extended="true">I also sympathize with Steven, but DAMN!:doh<P _extended="true">Glad this won't come to trial in the Deep South....The South has a history of..."the company has plenty of money, let's give the kid some":banghead:banghead:banghead<P _extended="true">

Yes I love it as far as I'm concerned he os out of luck. When he let his son play and knew they were using Aluminum bats he agreed to the dangers involved. I feel bad for his son, but life is tuff.

I agree, thats like buying a new corvette, doing 100 mph getting in a wreck then sueing Chevy because you cant drive. Hope they dont get a dime.

Yeah, I'm sure his dad never allowed or encouraged him to use an aluminum bat.

Why don't they sue the municipality or owner of the ballpark for reckless endangerment for constructing the ball field where they knew kids would be engaging in inherently dangerous activities.

Maybe they should also launch a congressional investigation to determine if the kid that hit the line drive was on steroids.

sorry to here about the child. but when you play sports their is always a chance of getting hurt. hunderds of child get hurt every year. that is one of things that no one has control over. it was an unfortunate accident with no malice on no ones part. law suits are getting crazy and as a result we pay the price for higher insurance cost.

Too bad about the kid and this is a stupid law suit, but its just a symptom of what's wrong with our health system. I guarantee you that the family had health insurance and the fees went over the $1 million or $2 million lifetime benefits amount and left the family without coverage and facing enormous bills most people could never pay. Some attorney at the hospital or wherever told them to sue so here we are.



Reform of medical insurance issues might end some of these BS suits.
