It's certainly unfortunate that the Crespins now have a special needs child to raise. I hope they can get over their pain. Placing blame is a stage that they will have to go through before they can deal with what's in front of them.

I think it is misleading to characterize the Isotopes case as the "baseball rule". As I understand the facts, the boy was sitting in the group "picnic area" during batting practice. I have been in that area and as I recall there are tables with benches installed in such a way that one of the benches requires that you sit with your back to the field. I don't have any problem with a rule that says you are responsible for ducking fly balls when you are seated facing the field, but that is not the case here. In my opinion this is a design flaw and should be litigated as such. Requiring you to sit with your back to the field while play (or practice) is going on creates an unnecessary risk.

Good point, Hunter. And one that the lawyer I am sure will run with. However, in my colloquial usage of "old baseball rule", I am merely referring to the fact that one's ticket stub, as well as highly visible signs peppered throughout the ballpark state that fans are at risk and need to be conscious of goings on at all times. I think I even read that the immediate area surrounding the picnic pavilion has no less than 80 such signs. But now it's in the District Court's hands, after the state Supreme Court refused to side with the family.

I don't know about the lab, but I've been to plenty of Major and Minor League games where people insisted on bringing small children, which is fine. However, if you take someone who is unable to protect themselves and decide to put them anywhere that high-speed projectiles are known to live it seems like you're taking a risk. I don't see how that is anyone's responsibility but the parent's.
