A man who alleges he was served oven cleaner with his french fries at a baseball game has sued the Hagerstown Suns for damages.
In a lawsuit filed Friday in Washington County Circuit Court, Stephen and Regina Parrotte of 10518 Bear Creek Road in Hagerstown claim Stephen Parrotte suffered "serious, painful and permanent injuries to his mouth, throat and digestive tract" after he ate oven-cleaner-topped fries during a home game in 2003.
The Parrottes are suing Big Game Capital, Big Game Maryland LLC, Big Game Maryland II LLC and Mandalay Baseball Properties for $950,000 in compensatory damages and $250,000 for the damage the incident caused their marriage. The Herald-Mail reported in December 2002 that Ohio-based Big Game Capital agreed to sell the Hagerstown Suns to Mandalay Baseball Properties, the team's current owner.
A woman at the Parrotte residence who identified herself as Regina Parrotte said Monday her husband would not comment about the case.
