Women Drops Claims Against MLB in Foul Ball Suit
On August 24, 2018, Wendy Camlin, a woman suing MLB, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Sports and Exhibition Authority and Allegheny Country, agreed to drop all of her claims against MLB. Back in April 20, 2015 Camlin attended a baseball game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Chicago Cubs at PNC Park, home of the Pittsburg Pirates, when a foul struck Camlin in the head. Camlin seat for the April 20, 2015 game was immediately behind home plate, in Row A, and there was a net protecting her from foul balls, but on this occasion, the netting behind home plate did not stop the ball before it struck Camlin.
In her lawsuit, Camlin alleged that the net was not properly installed or may not have been capable of providing adequate protection. Her trial is set for November 14, 2018.
