Fan Files Lawsuit Against LA Angels After Being Blinded From Ball Thrown By Player

Angels baseball stadiumLast season, David Mermelstein was seated in the outfield bleachers.  When the inning ended, Angels outfielder Juan Lagares threw the ball into the stands, intending it as a souvenir for a lucky fan.  However, he threw the ball hard, and it hit Mermelstein in the eye socket while he was eating peanuts.  As a result, he was blinded.

Mermelstein is suing for unspecified monetary damages, claiming the player and the Angels are liable since play had ended, and since the ball was thrown with such velocity.
