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.
