Apparently, getting hit in the 'nards by a baseball at a barbeque is not sufficient injury for recovery of damages, at least, according to one court.

I'm not giving all the details, but that's the gist of it. A guy goes to a baseball game. The game is coupled with a barbeque near the first base line. During warm up batting practice, someone hits a ball that bounces foul and hits one man in his motivation. He then sued for personal injuries. The judge of the case noted that many people who go to baseball games go in the hopes of retrieving a souvenir from the trip, often in the form of a foul ball. Most people try to catch it in their gloves, not their laps, though.
