At one point, Franco, who amassed 424 saves and 90 wins over 21 years, became enraged and flung an autographed baseball at a wall, Ms. King maintains in the suit, recently filed in Manhattan state Supreme Court.
what does a "female" agent have to do with the story at all? Does Franco get to throw baseball's at a "male" agent? Do we believe that a male agent would have been able to catch a ball thrown at him (without warning, while not wearing a baeball glove)by an ex-MLB pitcher?

This sounds ridiculous. I'm all for holding people accountable for their actions but assuming Franco threw the ball at a wall and not at the agent (assuming he didn't fire it right past her or anything) it's hard to see what he did legally wrong. It sounds like an awfully immature reaction but the lawyer's big concern appears to be Franco didn't apologize. That makes him a ######### but not a criminal but IANAL>
I can't believe the headline says he threw the ball at the agent, while the story says he threw it at a wall. That's a pretty big discrepancy.
Not necessarily. If he threw the ball and hit the wall near the agent, then it just comes down to a question of intent, i.e. at what was he aiming, and did he hit it or miss it?
Well, if you're concerned about the accuracy of the headline, you shouldn't just ignore the alleged shoving her away from the door and keeping her from leaving in what you would consider your own more accurate recounting, should you?
She's lucky it wasn't Fransisco Franco's sale.
This presupposes that the headline writer knew things about the incident that the reporter didn't. Most likely, the headline writer just read the story quickly and came up with the most inflammatory possible reading.
I don't see any reason to presume that the headline and/or the story are wrong, when there's no actual evidence that either or both are.
15 minutes is an eternity for something like glaring.
