WEST v. SUNDOWN LITTLE LEAGUE OF STOCKTON, INC., C038642

Losing a fly ball in the sun and being hit by it is an inherent risk of baseball assumed by all players, whether during little league warm-ups or during the World Series, and the defense of primary assumption of risk bars a player's recovery for such an injury.
