Jury rules in fa­vor of In­di­ans

B colum­bus, ohio» A jury said the Cleve­land In­di­ans aren’t re­spon­si­ble for in­juries to a New York man hit by a foul ball and blinded in one eye at a base­ball game in July 2012.

The de­ci­sion in a Cleve­land-area county court means Keith Rawl­ins, of Rochester, gets no money from his law­suit against the team.

The at­tor­ney rep­re­sent­ing the In­di­ans, Todd Hicks, said he’s pleased with the de­ci­sion. The team had ar­gued the case could have wide-rang­ing im­pli­ca­tions for ball­parks and teams across the na­tion.

Rawl­ins’ lawyers couldn’t im­me­di­ately be reached for com­ment.

He claimed he turned away from the field be­cause he was dis­tracted by sta­dium per­son­nel forc­ing him to re­lo­cate for a postgame fire­works show. The team said Rawl­ins moved vol­un­tar­ily.

• Roy­als out­fielder Jorge Soler will prob­a­bly be­gin his first sea­son in Kansas City on the dis­abled list af­ter strain­ing his oblique in a mi­nor-league game.

• Re­liever Tyler Thorn­burg “most likely” will open the sea­son on the dis­abled list, ac­cord­ing to Bos­ton Red Sox pres­i­dent of base­ball op­er­a­tions Dave Dom­browski.

• The Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als re­leased 42-year-old re­liever Joe Nathan, who in­di­cated he has no plans to re­tire.

Fans bolt for Charg­ers tick­ets

B los an­ge­les» The Los An­ge­les Charg­ers said they have sold all the avail­able sea­son tick­ets at their tem­po­rary home.

The re­cently re­lo­cated Charg­ers will play at the 30,000-seat Stub­Hub Cen­ter in sub­ur­ban Car­son, Calif., for the next two sea­sons be­fore mov­ing in 2019 into the $2.6 bil­lion sta­dium in In­gle­wood that they will share with the Rams.
