Anand and Sujata Kumar are suing the Taney Youth Baseball Association.

The Cherry Hill couple says Taney shouldn’t have allowed players to practice near the stands. They want more than $50,000 in damages.
Taney did not immediately return a message.
The organization won acclaim in August when the then-13-year-old Davis became the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game.
The Philadelphia Daily News first reported the lawsuit Tuesday.
