trying to figure out what sort of public liability insurance the sport carries?

Here all sports have included in their fees public liability....it covers ALL injuries sustained on the field and during games for everyone, spectators, players and employees (both volunteers and paid) of that sport.

Im going with this sport doesnt or doesnt cover certain people.  If this is the case...then who else is liable for him ending up in a wheelchair.  Im thinking that maybe he needs to bring to the attention of the health insurance who was responsible for the accident in order to get treatment.

dont know if Im making sense.

 That is outrageous.  He is an adult and as an adult should have health and disability insurance to cover the accidents in life.

 I think it's crap that the people defending the kids' actions are saying the words "The kids do it all the time." ---Referring to throwing equipment.

Who cares if they do it all the time? It doesn't mean it's right. If I remember correctly when I was playing ball, we were not allowed to take off our helmets while on the field. (offense, of course)

This kid threw his helmet while he was making the run. Not a 6 or 7 year old, either. 14 years old. Old enough to know better than to throw equipment, and even if he didn't know better, He definately should have bothered to LOOK where he was throwing it.   Oh, wait, he was still running the bases. Of course he couldn't look to where he was throwing.

I have no clue about any of the inner workings of sports as i'm not involved in them I watch some on tv but thats it. I just came across this article and thought i'd post here to see what everyone here thought about it.

There is threat of flying objects at all time on the field and surrounding...ever been to a MLB park? there are signs warning watch out for flying objects bats and balls...it is the risk you take

Quoting jehosoba84:
