A Seattle kid injury attorney discusses the possible dangers of using metal bats in Little League baseball.

Should Little League Teams Use Metal Baseball Bats?

This week, a family was awarded $14.5 million in a child accident lawsuit settlement with a bat manufacturer, a sporting goods chain, and Little League Baseball after their son suffered serious brain damage from a baseball struck with a metal bat.

According to the Seattle Times, Steven Domalewski was pitching in a Little League game when a batter struck a line drive into the boy’s chest. He went into cardiac arrest – and his medical emergency prevented oxygen from reaching his brain for several minutes as coaches and parents scrambled to call for emergency help. Six years later, the teen, now 18, lives with his parents and needs help with everyday tasks.
