    I hate people looking for quick money.
    Almost as much as I hate hypocrites.
    A million dollars is a little over the top.
    Hospital bills, sure; a tiny iota of money for punitive damages, maybe; a cool mil... no.

    And bye-bye soaperguy29.

    Put it this way Duckboy, if someone came up to you in the street and offered to give you $1.2m to cut off your balls, would you take it? I wouldn`t, not if given the choice. Which this guy wasn`t. What price do you put on future children`s lives now never happening?

    And Soaper, no "First"ing allowed on IAB. A good way to get permabanned.

    Ok, I understand $160,000 for medical expenses but $1,000,000 for "pain and suffering"? Yes, it would hurt like there`s no tommorow, but that`s just making America look more @#$%^&*bagish.

    Well Lion, they didn`t exactly say he can`t have children anymore; though that is a probable outcome.
    On the other hand they didn`t say he could have children; again, another probable outcome.

    I think to truly be able to tell what should have/could have happened we need a little more information. Until then I`ll stick to my guns and you stick to yours.

    If only I was a guy I could get quick money too...

    It`s a shame what happened to him, but he doesn`t deserve that much money. Accidents happen.

    ""He was hospitalized several days later", the kid smelled the money from an easy pay day. 160K for medical expenses? What kind of phisical therapy do you get for your groin that costs that much? Other than a lap dance"

    Haha, I like that.

    DAMN IT, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN ME!!!

    I got hit by a ball at a batting cage once. The ball somehow was chucked out of the pitching machine, fit through a small hole in a fence, smacked into a wall, and hit me in the face as I was walking away. The first thing I thought, however, was "OUCH! That hurt like a mother-drater!"... not so much "I`m going to own this joint tomorrow."

    Considering the ball was traveling at 60 miles per hour, that had to have hurt like hell. And if you`ve ever spent any time in the hospital, it costs more then you probably make in a year for anything that requires staying in there. However, 1.2 million dollars?? That is absurd!! Like the coffee lady at McDonald`s. People don`t want to work, period. They want to live like MTV cribs!! So lets hire a crooked/greedy attorney, and get rich suing someone!!! Figures this is in Miami, the cesspool by the sea!! "loony land", if you`ve ever lived there believe me!!!

    "The ball struck him after an employee asked him to go back into the batting cage to help pick up the balls."

    I suspect there`s more to this story, than what they`re reporting. I`ve been to many batting cages, and never been asked to clean up after myself.

    @DeeCache @Burnsy777

    Same here. NHS in the UK. Doesn`t universal healthcare rock? :)

    Hope you get it one day, America.

    As for the $1,000,000 for pain and suffering, The verdict said the million was for "pain and suffering"...it didn`t say it was just for his pain and suffering while he was in the hospital, does it? Do we know what long-term damage was done? No, we don`t. It`s possible that his genitalia are permanently reduced in functionality or disfigured due to this, and the "pain and suffering" being compensated here is for his current and future loss.

    And if that is true (and we`re never going to know; they`re not exactly going to release such sensitive and embarrassing information to the media), don`t you think that permanent partial or full destruction of a 19 year old`s sexual ability, or mutilation of his genitalia, due to negligence of trained employees, would be worth $1 million?

    Or to put it far more simply; if you were a young man and someone`s negligence caused you to lose your testicles, wouldn`t you want some drating serious compensation for that?

    That might be along the lines of what`s happened here.

    I`ve been hit in the balls before. I didn`t know if I sued them my "pain and suffering" would be worth a million dollars. That`s so bogus, even if they did award it for future pain and suffering, how do they prove how much that should be worth? I understand the medical costs and SOME extra money, but not ALL of THAT.

    @ElDavo

    And if your "pain and suffering" was losing your balls, or having your penis so damaged that you could never have proper sex again, wouldn`t you sue?

    We don`t know if that`s what has happened in this case, but it`s a possibility that you should keep in mind.
