Would You Take A 60 MPH Pitch Off The Balls For $1.2 Million ?

Posted by Mike on November 12, 2008


This has always been the age-old question, would you have anal-sex with Danny Devito (or insert any celebrity) for a large sum of money ? Well, a new question has arose since 19-year-old Lhyvann Felipe accidentally got a batting cage ball off of his groin. Felipe was later hospitalized and as the Miami Herald reported, he was awarded $1.2 Million dollars in damages yesterday. The list of things I would do for $1.2 Million dollars is long, vile, and starts with Camryn Manheim. It just so happens that Felipe was a lucky one. More from Miami Herald:

Miami-Dade jury has awarded almost $1.2 million to a 21-year-old man hit in the groin by a batting-cage pitch.

The jury decided last week that the Sluggers batting cage operation at Tamiami Park in West Miami-Dade negligently failed to properly supervise its employees.

Lhyvann Felipe, who was 19 years old at the time, was hit in the groin by a 60 mph pitch, said his attorney, Gabriel M. Sanchez. He was hospitalized several days later.

The ball struck him after an employee asked him to go back into the batting cage to help pick up the balls.

The machine, which had already completed the cycle and did not have the lights on, spit out the ball, which hit him.
