NJ baseball player sues coach for telling him to slide

BOUND BROOK - A former Bound Brook High School baseball player will get a fresh chance in court to prove that his coach was reckless in telling him to slide during a junior varsity game.

During the slide, court papers say, Jake Maser's cleats "dug into the dirt and the force of the slide caused him to roll over his right ankle." Maser, a 2016 graduate of Bound Brook High School, required surgery.

In his lawsuit, Maser alleged that Coach John Suk and the Bound Brook Board Board of Education "negligently" and "carelessly" supervised the game.

But Suk and the board asked Superior Court Judge Yolanda Ciccone to dismiss the suit because Maser had not proven that the coach had been negligent under a recklessness standard.

When Ciccone dismissed the lawsuit, Maser appealed to the appellate court which, on Wednesday, balked at Ciccone's decision.


The appellate court ruled that Ciccone "never analyzed whether (Maser) presented facts in support of his claim that (Suk's and the board's) conduct was reckless."

The appellate court remanded the case back to Ciccone "to make that analysis." The appellate court said it would "not suggest the outcome" of the case.

That decision gives Ciccone the option to dismiss the case or have it proceed toward trial.

According to court papers, Maser, a freshman, was at bat in the second inning of the game with runners on second and third base. With Bound Brook ahead 6-0, Maser hit a long drive to the gap in left centerfield.

After Maser rounded second, he decided to leg out a triple. Suk, who was coaching third, knew there was going to be a "bang-bang" play at third, because the outfield was throwing the ball to the base, so he instructed Maser to slide.

That's when the injury occurred.

Tort cases often don't have a 'bad guy,' and there was no bad guy in this case. I will say that McDonald's should have accepted her initial request to have her existing and anticipated medical bills paid for, I believe it was like $20k. Not only is that obviously much less than the eventual ruling, but society could very well be different today. Legal precedent can be a bitch.

I refer to her as such because she spilled her entire cup into her lap while the car was parked. We've all had spills, but the entire cup?!?!? You have to try to do that IMO.


I can think of a lot of better ways to commit suicide.
