Man Hit by Bat in 2007 Sues Mets,


Luis Castillo is costing the Mets money, aside from his hefty contract, says a New York Injury Lawyer. He is being sued by a New Jersey man who was badly injured after being struck by a piece of Castillo’s shattered bat – a man who was sitting in the presumably safe box seats at the time.

The 2007 Mets-Brave game turned into a nightmare for New Jersey man who sustained multiple facial fractures. He had to have pins placed into his jaw and metal plates placed in his face.

“It looks like a spear,” the victim’s attorney told a New York Injury Lawyer about the bat that hit his client in the face. “It’s going to be a long time before he takes his son to another ballgame.”

The victim is not suing only the player, but the manufacturer of the bat, the Mets, Major League Baseball, and the player who loaned Castillo the bat in the first place. The suit seeks an undisclosed sum of money.

The heart of the suit is maple bats, like the one Castillo used, claiming such bats are more prone to shattering than bats made from ash. “When a maple bat shatters,” the plaintiff’s attorney told a New York Injury Lawyer, “it actually explodes. It sends shrapnel everywhere.”
