The woman who was struck by foul ball at PNC is suing the Pirates, MLB
The incident occurred in April of 2015 during a Cubs-Pirates game.
A woman who was struck by a foul ball during a Cubs-Pirates game at PNC Park in April of last year is suing the MLB, the Pirates, and the Sports & Exhibition Authority. Matthew Santoni of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Wendy Camlin and her attorney filed a civil lawsuit on Friday in which she seeks in excess of $35,000 from each of the three defendants.
In that suit, Camlin is identified as the fan who was struck by a foul ball off the bat of Starlin Castro on April. The cirumstances are somewhat unusual, in that Camlin was behind the protective netting, but the force of the ball was such that she was still struck on the left side of her skull by the ball, even though the ball bounced back onto the field. Here's video of the incident:
As Santoni notes, Camlin in her suit alleges that the netting in question was not properly installed or may not have been capable of providing adequate protection. As well, Camlin claims that ushers should not have directed her to her seat while play was ongoing.
