Keeping the Family Safe at the Ball Field This Spring
With spring just around the corner, Connecticut families will find themselves at the ball field evenings and weekends. Whether it is softball or baseball, the risk of personal injury is present. Here are a few ways you can keep yourself and your family safe this spring:
- Heads Up! Stray and foul balls are a part of the game. They can cause injuries if fans and on-lookers are not paying attention. Always stay alert and beware of your surroundings when at the field.
- Beware Fido! As the weather gets warmer, dog owners like to bring Fido outdoors for some fresh air. You will see lots of family dogs at the ball field and should be mindful of dogs you do not know. Read these nine signs of an imminent dog bite.
- Watch Your Step! For the most part baseball and softball fields are outdoors, where surfaces are uneven. Be mindful of your step. Falls can cause serious and lasting injuries.
