You've "heard stories"? Yeah, there is a viable source.

And actually, I was referring to the insurance company attempting to recoup any cost.

This is why signed waivers do not completely protect people from lawsuits. Even though they would still be protected by Bollinger as long as the original event was ASA sanctioned, some umpires will not continue working a game if it ends prematurely.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
