BALTIMORE (AP) — The family of a 10-year-old girl hit in the head by a baseball during batting practice at Oriole Park at Camden Yards is suing the Baltimore Orioles and Maryland Stadium Authority.

The Daily Record of Baltimore reports the lawsuit seeking more than $75,000 was filed Monday in Baltimore City Circuit Court.

It says Jennifer Dempsey was hit by a ball last August and underwent nine hours of emergency surgery for a fractured skull, broken cheekbones and other injuries. The lawsuit also says she suffered a traumatic brain injury.

David Paulson, a spokesman for the Office of the Maryland Attorney General, says the lawsuit is the first of its kind since the stadium opened in 1992. Team representatives did not return The Daily Record’s requests for comment.
