BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A jury has been seated to hear a lawsuit accusing former major leaguer Jose Offerman of a baseball bat attack during a 2007 minor league game in Connecticut.
Offerman's lawyer, Frank Riccio II, said Wednesday that testimony in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport is expected to begin Thursday. He said the trial could last through July 25.
Offerman played for the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and other teams during a 15-year major league career that ended in 2005.
He played for the Long Island Ducks in 2007 when he was hit by a pitch, charged the mound and allegedly hit two Bridgeport Bluefish players with his bat, including catcher Johnathan Nathans.
Nathans suffered a head injury that ended his baseball career. He's suing Offerman and the Ducks for $4.8 million.
