The plaintiff, a spectator at a baseball game, brought an action to recover for injuries sustained when he was struck by a foul ball. He was sitting in a reserved seat, but in a section of the grandstand not protected by a wire netting. Despite novel allegations designed, apparently, to suggest plaintiff's right to rely on the implication that a "reserved seat" is one which is located back of a protecting screen, and, further, to deny any μappreciation of the risk, on plaintiff's part, by suggesting that, at sixty-four, he was subject to the failing eyesight which customarily accompanies that advanced age, it was held that the operators of the ball park were not liable. Hudson v. Kansas City Baseball Club (Mo. 1942) 164 S. W. (2d) 318.
