Greenwood, SC -- Mr. Whetstone, with other counsel, represented a young man who received brain damage when he was struck in the head by a batted baseball. The bat, when inspected, had been manufactured to avoid regulations regarding exit speed. The manufacturing modification created a trampoline effect and caused the ball to exit the bat at a speed beyond that approved for the bat. This product defect case was settled prior to trial for $1.82 million.
