Play Ball - or Duck it?

On this episode Billy and his guests discuss the case of Manning v. Grimsley. The case is about a spectator who was hit by a ball thrown by the pitcher during a baseball game, and it raises the question of whether the employer of the pitcher can be held liable for the harm caused by their employee. The discussion also touches on the faulty fence surrounding the field, and the assumption of risk that comes with attending a baseball game.

The Case in Question:

Manning v. Grimsley - 643 F.2d 20 (1st Cir. 1981)
