Now that Louisville Slugger is liable for baseball injuries, why not start sue knife companies if you cut your finger making dinner. BTW, the idiot judge and jury who handed down this verdict are from Montana. Idiots. See video link below.

Why does that matter, exactly?

Because this court in Montana has opened the door federally for law suits against baseball bat manufactures. Montana is the same state that told the feds they have no right to restrict intrastate gun and ammo transfers. Just an eyebrow raiser.

I don't think it necessarily reflects upon Montana; it just reflects on the nature of the judge.

Looks like we are heading in the same way England is, but I don't think they have banned Cricket bats yet (?).

Next, baseball players will be arrested as soon as they step into the batters box for possession of a deadly weapon. Think of the poor baseball! It's not fair <stamping feet>

You're kind of missing the point here.

Yes, it's coincidental that the state this happened in just expanded gun rights.

The important thing is this re-opens the door to frivolous lawsuits against firearms manufacturers, which is NOT a good thing.

See the connection?

If aluminum bats are excessively dangerous then pitchers should be wearing helmets. If pitchers and regulators don't think it's worth wearing helmets, then I see no reason the manufacturers should think them excessively dangerous.
