Little League coach sues parents for injury

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (WKRC) -- A former Little League coach in California is suing on of his players for $500,000.

According to the lawsuit, Alan Beck is suing the boy and his parents for medical costs, lost wages and "pain and suffering" attributed to a torn Achilles tendon.

The injury, Beck claims, was caused by Joe Paris' 14-year-old son.

Paris' son was on second base when his teammate hit a single into the outfield. The young teen rounded third and as he went to score the game-winning run, he tossed his baseball helmet into the air in celebration.

According to the legal paperwork, the helmet came down and severed Beck's tendon.

Legal experts told KCRA-TV in Sacramento the case would be hard to prove intent or malice, especially in a sport where potential injury is understood.

Paris says he and his wife have already had to payout thousands of dollars in legal costs just to respond to the lawsuit.
