This comment examines law regarding spectator injury at baseball games. The Baseball Facility Liability Act, which was enacted by the Illinois legislature to prevent spectators from recovering damages for injuries suffered at baseball games is specifically analyzed. The author asserts that the current legislation should be stricken from Illinois law, and proposes changes in the law that would lead to more equitable outcomes in cases involving foul balls.
