NJ family sues Louisville Slugger maker for son’s injuries

Posted on August 6th, 2012 No Comments

A Wayne, New Jersey, family has settled their lawsuit against Kentucky-based Hillerich and Bradsby, which makes Louisville Sluggers, as well as Sports Authority Inc., Little League Inc., and New Jersey Little League after their son suffered brain injuries during a Little League game.

The accident occurred in 2006 when the then-12-year-old boy threw a pitch and was hit in the chest by the ball by a batter using an aluminum Louisville Slugger. The ball hit his heart between beats, causing his heart to stop for several minutes, which lead to oxygen deprivation in the boy’s brain.

According to The Record, the boy’s family claims aluminum bats propel balls faster than wooden ones and should not be used in Little League games. They believe the bat was not properly tested for safety.
