From the article: "LOS ANGELES - An Ohio teen baseball pitcher who suffered a skull fracture after being struck by a ball during a game is suing the Van Nuys-based manufacturer of an aluminum bat. Cole Schlesner, 18, filed the products liability suit Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against Easton Sports Inc. and some of its subsidiaries, alleging its BT265 bat is defectively designed and "unreasonably dangerous." He is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. He also wants an injunction preventing Easton from claiming the bat is safe when the company knows, according to the plaintiffs, of its "serious propensity to cause injuries" during play. "Easton designed its bat so that players could hit a ball harder and faster than any other bats," the suit states." At first glance this seems ot be a case of sue whoever has the deep pockets. It's terrible about the injury, but it sounds as if the bat did exactly what it is supposed to do, and the family wants to say that, in and of itself, is the defective part of the equation.
