Ain’t that America!
A greedy New Jersey woman is trying to cash in on a clutzy Little League catcher — claiming he intentionally beaned her in the face with a baseball during a warm-up session with his pitcher.
Elizabeth Lloyd, 45, is looking for a $500,000 payday after suffering a broken orbital bone during a May 2010 game at Manchester-Lakehurst field. She endured “severe, painful and permanent personal injuries,” the suit says.
Matthew was following his coach’s instructions when he was tossing the ball in left field with a pitcher who stood about 46 feet away, his dad said. But he overthrew, sending the ball over a fence and striking Lloyd — who was seated about 10 feet beyond the bullpen fence.
Migliaccio said he filed an incident report with the Little League himself, and his son checked in on the woman at least a couple of times after she was injured.
But he finds it ridiculous that his boy’s poor throw was interpreted as reckless assault and battery.
