Default The Sox Are Being Sued

http://es.pn/2CDh7Am

Mod Note: This lawsuit was brought by a player who injured himself banging into a box on the wall while trying to run down a fowl ball.

The Sox will probably settle before it gets far, but a player assumes the risk of his environment whenever he goes out there. I'm sorry he got hurt, but these things happen.

This is the first I have ever heard of something like this.

Not sure how the union and league didn't get together to avoid something like a lawsuit going public.

He's still a union member from what I know, assuming his injuries are not career ending.

Um, okay?

What happened to him was horrible and really sad given his debut, but a lawsuit?
