A woman who was blinded in one eye after getting hit with a foul ball at a baseball game says the team is responsible.
Now, she's getting a hearing in front of a state supreme court.
Four years ago, a foul ball struck Juanita DeJesus while she was at a minor league game. She was sitting along the first base line at the stadium where the Gary South Shore Railcats play.
DeJesus lost her eye. She thinks the team is at fault.
Indiana's high court has agreed to decide if she'll get a full trial.
"From the time of the accident, I find it hard to watch a ballgame," DeJesus said. "You know, just the sound of a bat cracking and a baseball is, I can't stand it, I can't tolerate it."
Legal experts say these types of lawsuits rarely succeed.
Some states have given ball clubs immunity. Other states have decided that fans assume a risk of injury when they're at a game.
