Take Me Out to the Ballgame

The Blame Game

On May 29, 2019, a four year old girl was seriously injured after getting struck by a foul ball during a baseball game between the the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros.  Her story is one that is repeated hundreds of times every year at baseball stadiums across the country.  And yet despite knowledge that fans are getting struck (and sometimes even killed) by foul balls, Major League Baseball only requires teams to provide protective netting to the end of the home team and visiting team dugouts.  In this episode, we take a closer look at The Baseball Rule, its effect on the legal responsibility of baseball teams towards fans who get injured by foul balls and broken bats, and try to answer the question of who, if anyone, is to blame for these events.
