$14.5M for boy’s brain injury from metal bat

This is absolutely ridiculous. How is Louisville Slugger responsible for this? Did their product malfunction? No. Why not sue Rawlings because their baseball was too hard? On top of which, no one forces you to play baseball. The parents knew they use metal bats and they know the risks. Maybe you should teach him how to pitch so someone doesn’t jack one off him. What’s next? Are they going to press charges on the batter for hitting the ball that hit him? Or maybe the catcher for the pitch he called that got roped? It's a shame the kid got hurt but I wish Louisville Slugger would have taken them to court. This is why our society is turning into a bunch of pansies.
