Coach suing his player for unintentionally injuring him

  • California Little League coach Alan Beck is suing his 14-year-old player for accidentally throwing a helmet at him and tearing his Achilles tendon. 

    Beck is asking for $500K for the medical bills and his pain. The player's father mentioned that his son threw the helmet while crossing home plate and this happens often. He mentioned that he doesn't see this lawsuit as being a reasonable one. 

    A legal analyst said the lawsuit may not go too far considering that baseball diamonds are known to be risky places. 

    A case hearing has been set for March.
