Thanks to reader Ron Miller for his post “Pitcher Gets Verdict for Bad Pitcher Mound” in the The Maryland Injury Lawyer Blog in which he discusses a young pitcher, an injury and a verdict. The boy hurt his arm and found a way to sue over the height and construction of the mound! Creative theory.
Question in these parts is whether it would survive summary judgment based on releases. My hunch is that the verdict may cause amateur associations to rewrite their releases to include release of vendors and suppliers. As my mom would say, "OY!"
