Two stories posted at exactly 9:01 pm today on their website,,,, "Eye on the Ball" and "Boy dies after being struck by baseball" Terrible tradgedy but shouldn't someone have said to themselves "hmmm" this isn't right...

Shudder the headlines tomorrow, please be sensitive for a change..

They have changed the page now ... someone must have finally caught on to it. A sad accident for sure.

I noticed on the Guardian website they said they were withholding the childs name pending notification of relatives, yet named the parents in the article.

Anyone need a job as a proof reader???

Unbelievably stupid that they would give the names of the parents but claim to withholding the boy's name until next of kin are notified.

Well, they fixed both mistakes in the Journal, then I see the Guardian did the same thing with the names.

As for the story, terrible tragedy for the friends and family.
