Try getting some hot 30 something mom with her kid to go to the field. Then have her when asking about safety with her young kid that has never played before if they are insured and by who.

I actually don't see it as too much of a stretch to charge someone who is knowingly shooting hot with battery/assault. The whole will-fully causing harm and whatnot. It is one thing to be hit once or twice by a standard marker as is stated in the agreed upon rules, but it is another to be actively attempting to cause pain and suffering.

Talk to the right lawyer and I can easily see the field owners facing criminal negligence charges, and losing.

Personally I would start at suitable local government office and talk with someone there. If idiots want to get together privately and make each other bleed, then fine. But if they're doing this as a public field, that is a serious safety hazard, and needs to be shut down.

I haven't analyzed the waiver but I will get a copy and take a look at it with a fine toothed comb.

Good luck getting it sorted. I've been shot in the side of the neck by a kid running hot and bonus balling, and no one should have to put up with that kind of treatment. I'm just happy that the few people who come to my local field and would put up with things like that are quickly asked to leave.

If they are not willing to look after simple safety issues on their own let alone have a customer come up and tell them they need a chronograph and not take the issue seriously, they should not be in business.
