Sun glare blamed on ballpark owner

by Walter Olson on April 5, 2010

“Slo-pitch player sues field owner after being struck by ball” reads the headline of the Globe and Mail’s story from Hamilton, Ontario. A judge is allowing the suit to go forward, noting “that diamond officials had talked about putting up sun screens at the field.”

Gosh, sunlight at a baseball game. How weird.

I think the conclusion is that baseball should only be played in the dark.

He also alleged the company failed to inspect the diamond or “warn [Mr. Black] of the dangers of the sun at the particular time of day.”

They let the lawsuit proceed after this charge was made? Unbelievable!

of the dangers of the sun at the particular time of day

Except that where the sun is at 3:30 pm on April 5 is different from where it is at 3:30 pm on April 24th. It’s that dang orbit…
