Isn’t it?

A woman from the Meiers Corners section of Staten Island is suing the New Springville Little League and two of the league’s coaches over injuries that her son suffered while sliding into second base three years ago.

Jean Gonzalez alleges that her son Martin, who was 12 at the time, was not properly taught how to slide into second after trying to stretch a single into a double in a league game on May 4, 2004.

Maybe the bases needed a warning label: Caution. Do Not Attempt to Stretch a Single Into a Double.
