    What can I say, except that this decision was pretty batty, but what can you expect from judges who don't have the balls to support the Constitution? We need an umpire here - SCOTUS. This may have gotten to first base, but I don't expect it to be making it to home plate. Definitely a bad call here. Instant replay, anybody?

    I only quote you because for the most part today in children's sports everyone is a hero and everyone gets a trophy and just read a few days ago that Parents are shunned for cheering for their child because it might hurt another childs feelings.
    I believe the outrage at this and awards like it are pretty much universal unless you lost a child in some freak accident, at which point you just have to blame someone for it.
    Having played little league as a pitcher I have been hit by the ball in a most unpleasant region and in the face. It happens, hell I broke most of my fingers my nose, right leg, and got a hernia playing football and the only getting even I wanted was with the other team or the guy who did it. Children are and for have been raised like they were delicate Crystal and they have no concept of what is now called manning up. Their parents are the same and have to have someone to blame and make then pay as if life has no risks and personal responsibility no longer exists.
    Tort reform is something that will come on the glorious gay when pigs fly, because trial lawyers donate huge sums to your mostly crooked politicians who is more interested in reelection than anything resembling fairness unless that fairness is heavily in their favor.

    Fixed that for you. It's not all lawyers who are responsible for this ****, it's plaintiff's lawyers and their tens of millions in donations to Congress.

    Or he could have had his dome busted by a shard of a wooden bat. It's not like those aren't dangerous.

    If you want to blame anyone blame the judges and the juries not the lawyers.
    No, each and every lawyer has the freedom to accept or decline the cases that prospective plaintiffs bring them.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
