Foul Ball

An appeals court in Illinois declined to compel to arbitration a personal injury suit brought against Major League Baseball by a woman who was hit in the face by a foul ball while attending a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field. The court ruled that there was a low likelihood that a ticket holder would “actually find, obtain, and read the full arbitration provision by accessing the Cub’s website or visiting the administrative office.”
