N.J. woman hit with ball sues Little League player
Question of the Day
Migliaccio said if his son had been horsing around, he would feel differently. But Matthew was doing what his coaches told him to do, he said, and noted Little League players aren’t always accurate in their throws.
“It’s absurd to expect every 11-year-old to throw the ball on target,” Migliaccio said. “Everyone knows you’ve got to watch out. You assume some risk when you go out to a field. That’s just part of being at a game.”
Migliaccio said he and his wife, Sue, would love to beat the charges in court, but it could cost them tens of thousands of dollars. They also don’t want to put their son and other kids on the team through all the questions and depositions a trial would bring.
“It’s to the point now where we just want it to be over,” he said.
Matthew, described by his father as a “baseball junkie,” still plays on three different teams. But Migliaccio and his wife have stepped down from coaching and managing the concession stand because of the suit.
Migliaccio said as angry as he is about the lawsuit, he’s almost more angry with Little League. He said they’ve volunteered hundreds of hours over the years, and he believes Little League should assist in defending their son.
