Sporting Chance? Injured Umpire Sues

On 18 April 2009, Edwin Hickox was umpire for the New York Yankees v Clevland Indians baseball match. In the sixth innings of the game, he was struck on the head by a ball hit by Indians batter Ben Francisco, which he alleges shattered his protective face mask and caused him to suffer a concussion, cuts to his left ear and an injury to the head.

Mr Hickox has now sued the manafacturers of the face mask and their parent company in Bronx County Supreme Court, New York for, amongst other things, personal injury and breach of warranty. Watch this space...!
