Woman sues Little League player
Jun 22, 2012 / 11:16 am
A New Jersey woman who was struck in the face with a baseball at a Little League game is suing the young catcher who threw it.
Elizabeth Lloyd is seeking more than $150,000 in damages to cover medical costs from the Manchester Little League game two years ago. She's also seeking an undefined amount for pain and suffering.
Lloyd was sitting at a picnic table near a fenced-in bullpen when she was hit with the ball. Catcher Matthew Migliaccio was 11-years-old at the time and was warming up a pitcher.
Anthony Pagano, a lawyer for the Migliaccio and his family, says the lawsuit is "frivolous" and "disgusting."
A Little League spokesman says their insurance doesn't cover spectators.
Lloyd's lawyer could not be reached.
