Little league coach suing kid after helmet toss causes injury

A former Little League baseball coach has filed a civil summons against a 14-year-old player and his parents after he was injured during a post-game celebration last year.

Alan Beck told the incident occurred last spring when the teen threw his helmet up after scoring the winning run.

“I could not register right at that second, so I turned around and looked and there was a helmet laying on the ground and this young man that hit me was looking at me, stunned,” Beck said.

The lawsuit seeks $500,000 for pain and suffering and more than $100,000 for lost wages and medical bills. Beck told the tv station that he wants his out of pocket medical expenses covered which totaled $20,000.

“I feel like a victim because, basically, I tried to work this out with the parents. The parents never acknowledged my injury,” Beck told the station Wednesday.

The parents claim to be shocked by the summons.
