Little League baseball player Matthew Migliaccio is 13 now, but he was 11 years old when he overthrew a baseball causing it to go over a fence and hit Elizabeth Lloyd in the face as she was seated at a picnic table 5 feet away, according to her. Not only is she suing on two counts, "Lloyd's husband, in a third count, is suing for the loss of "services, society and consortium" of his wife. They've demanded a jury trial."
According to the Asbury Park Press, the total damages amount to $500,000, "Lloyd, 45, of the Whiting section of Manchester, recently filed a lawsuit against the teen, seeking $500,000 in damages." Lloyd was reportedly watching her own son play baseball at the time.

According to the lawsuit, Lloyd contends Matthew intentionally struck her, causing permanent injuries. Mian said the suit was filed after attempts to reach a settlement with insurance companies failed. “He throws his best fast ball over the bullpen into the picnic area, striking my client in the face,” Mian said. “Life is now different for my client.” Mian said Lloyd – who was taken to a hospital emergency room after the May 2010 incident – had to undergo reconstructive surgery and suffers from headaches.
