    Re: Retired firefighter suing New York Yankees after he's beaten at Stadium

    Geez - first of all, I'm glad this didn't become another near-fatal beating at a ballpark.

    The article states there were witnesses to the verbal abuse at the cafe, but nothing about anyone who may have seen the actual attack. If they were that drunk, they probably didn't care who saw them. This certainly does sound like he's got a legitimate case if his attackers were served alcohol when they were already visibly "under the influence". I'm sure those who have a legal background here can elaborate.
    September 28, 2008 - the day the HOF got a wake-up Moose call.

    "... eating the kids candy..." and after the complaint was made security

    "... escort them back to their field level seats ..."


    1. If someone was eating my kids' candy - that would be the end of the conversation.

    2. He should have notified security's supervisor instead of letting the "newly employed" security escort the offenders back to their field level seats. (most likely, everyone involved are sitting in same section).

    2a. If they were drunk or seems intoxicated, he should have COMPLAINT to the security's supervisor AND the customer service's supervisor. WHEN he did, they would have:

    a. the drunk party or alleged drunk party would have been given a warning or they would have been ejected immediately. Problems solved.

    b. His complaints would have been honored by the stadium customer service department - due to the nature of the complaints and especially when kids are involved. His entire family would have been moved to a COMP field MVP seats.


    3. If he wins this case, what stop others "suing happy" fans not pulling the same thing?



    Bottom line, the kids were safe and the father should have known better - never put your kids in danger for a baseball game!


    I have been to more than enough games with kids - toddlers and teenagers. I always try to avoid drunken fans by doing what I posted above. 10 out of 10 times - security's supervisor along with a couple uniformed NYPD would have nipped the potential problem in the bud! As for being upgrade to COMP field MVP - it happened one time!
    It's never about what you know, it's who you know ..... and who's willing to help you to get where you want to be.
