You couldn’t make this up

A New Jersey woman is suing after being hit in the face two years ago with an errant throw at a Little League baseball game.

Honestly.

The kid who made the throw was 11 years old. He was warming up a pitcher at the time — in a fenced-in bullpen.

Honestly.

The woman, Elizabeth Lloyd, is seeking $150,000 for medical damages and an unspecified amount for pain and suffering.

Honestly.

According to the Associated Press, the lawsuit, which  was filed April 24, alleges the catcher’s errant throw was intentional and reckless, “assaulted and battered” Lloyd and caused “severe, painful and permanent” injuries.

Honestly.

And Little League Baseball is not helping out with the kid’s defense, leaving his father to contemplate settling because of the costs and because he and his wife don’t want to put their son and the other kids on the team through all the questions and depositions a trial would bring.

Honestly.
