AP - If it had been a foul ball or broken bat that struck John Coomer in the eye as he watched a Kansas City Royals game, it's unlikely the courts would have forced the team to pay for the surgeries and suffering he's endured. But because it was a hot dog thrown by the team mascot — behind the back, no less — he just may have a case. The Missouri Supreme Court is weighing whether the "baseball rule" — a legal standard that protects teams from being sued over fan injuries caused by events on the field, court or rink — should also apply to injuries caused by mascots or the other personnel that teams employ to engage fans and justify steep ticket prices. Because the case could set a legal precedent, it could change how teams in other cities and sports approach interacting with fans at their games.
At any given moment, several debates can be going on, in a free flow of expression not possible everywhere in Cuba. People come and go, moving from one discussion to another, leaning in to hear above the din that at times sounds like a riot because the ethos here is not conciliation, but disagreement, usually jocular and often delivered with philosophical flair. One young man postulates that Cuba has enough good pitching to win the world classic, a competition among national teams starting on March 5.
Marlins Man, real name Laurence Levy, and his mermaids. For the second time this baseball season, the famous fan brought a group of attractive women to a Marlins game and they sat alongside him much to the delight of the Twitterverse. While Marlins Man — real name Laurence Levy — went to take photos with fans in wheelchairs, one of his gorgeous companions shook her breasts for the cameras, which apparently did not go unnoticed by the Marlins brass.
On Monday, baseball takes its mid-season break. Although Kevin Costner may seem lost in Sherwood Forest, he bats a thousand in the box- office hit as Crash Davis, an aging minor-league catcher who loves soft, wet kisses that last three days. The world-weary Crash is sent to the Durham Bulls club to baby-sit a dimwitted up-and-coming pitcher a riotous Tim Robbins and ends up falling for the sexy baseball groupie Annie Savoy Susan Sarandon.
River rafting and billiards, sure. But who knew that the creator of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn was a devotee of baseball? The answer: Lots of folks, in his time.
Baseball is as sexy as a spectator sport gets. Let me tell you right off the bat as it were what I don't mean by that. I don't mean anything having to do with groupies, so you can forget about Bull Durham and its only-in-Hollywood Whitman-spouting, financially carefree heroine.
Over the past few years, as my baseball fandom spiked to near-ridiculous levels, I found myself using a stock phrase when discussing my favorite players. For whatever reason, it was important that people men knew I was a serious and unemotional devotee of the sport, someone not to be dismissed as a mere fangirl lusting after butts in belted baseball pants. Female baseball fans will know what I'm talking about—this nagging impulse to reassure others that you're not there for the obvious aesthetic on-field show. Romantic appreciation for male athletes is certainly one of the more common accusations levied against ladies who like the game; it's a way to dismiss women's interest and knowledge as lesser than our male counterparts.
