A family from Montana was awarded $850,000 from the manufacturer of a Louisville Slugger Aluminum baseball bat that caused the death of their teenage son in 2003.
The teenager was pitching in an American Legion baseball game when he was struck in the head with a baseball that was hit with an aluminum bat. The family contended that the aluminum bat was dangerous because the baseball travels at a much higher velocity than one does when it is hit with a wooden bat and their son did not have time to react. They contended that the company did not place any type of warnings or precautions on the bat to inform individuals of the danger.
