Lawsuit Seeks Better Protection for Fans From Foul Balls and Broken Bats - The New York Times

“Section 211 in the second deck”? If you can’t pay attention enough or can’t move fast enough to get out of the way, either sit further back or don’t go at all.

The lead plaintiff, Gail Payne, is an Oakland A’s fan who feels vulnerable because her seats in Section 211 in the second deck at Coliseum are not protected by netting. A fan beside her was injured by a foul ball, her lawyer said.
