Louisville Slugger’s loses appeal over pitcher’s death in Montana

July 27th, 2011 by cstark

Interesting story about the state of Montana Supreme Court upholding verdict against Louisville Slugger in Legion pitcher’s death in 2006.

The court ruled that Louisville Slugger didn’t communicate to players the potential risk of harm due to the aluminum bat’s increased speed. Wonder what  impact of this ruling will have onmanufacturers making aluminum bats?

    Interesting story. While I’m sure everyone is sorry about the kid’s injuries, what I would like to know is the exact difference in time, speed, and reaction times, are between a ball struck by an aluminum or wood bat? And, however slight the difference is, would that have made a difference for the injuries sustained?
