A lawsuit filed against a Manchester family whose son threw an errant Little League throw that injured a spectator continues, said Bob Miglaccio, father to 13-year-old catcher Matthew.
Migliaccio, speaking on a Facebook page dedicated to the case, said he and his family want to thank everybody for supporting the family "throughout all of this."
"Sadly, at this point ,the suit continues, but we are confident of a positive outcome, hoping sooner rather than later," he said. "We'll do our best to keep you updated as things progress. Thanks for caring."
Matthew Migliaccio was 11 when his practice throw left the Manchester Little League field where he was warming up and struck Elizabeth Lloyd of Whiting in the face.
Two years later, Lloyd is suing the teen for $500,000, saying that she was assaulted and battered by the throw and has ongoing pain and anguish.
Support also has come through a Facebook group called "Stand up for Matthew Migliaccio," which has over 1,700 members.
Migliaccio also said that, since the incident, the family has received emails and phone calls from around the world.
"No child should have a sheriff show up at his front door to serve him papers for a frivolous lawsuit," reads the group's description.
Migliaccio said that he and his wife will refrain from publicly commenting on the Facebook group page.
