CHARLESTON, WV -

A Kanawha County jury has awarded a former Capital High School baseball player injured playing wiffle ball during an indoor practice four years ago nearly $33,000 in damages.

Dillon King was playing first base when he collided with another player, breaking his jaw.

His lawsuit, filed in Kanawha County Circuit Court, alleged the baseball coach at that time, Robert Massey, had failed to properly supervise the practice and properly coach the players. Massey has since left Capital's baseball program.

King's attorney, Rusty Webb, said the jury found the Board of Education to be 90 percent at fault, awarding his client nearly $25,000 for medical bills and $8,000 for pain and suffering.

“We are pleased that the jury concluded that the coach was negligent in his supervision,” Webb said. “We have maintained all along that had he been properly supervising his players, this collision would not have happened.

The board was represented by Bailey & Wyant of Charleston.
