Jury selection to begin in lawsuit against ex-major leaguer Offerman for 2007 game attack

Jury selection is set to begin in a lawsuit against former major leaguer Jose Offerman for attacking another player with a baseball bat during a 2007 minor league game in Connecticut.

Attorneys are scheduled to begin picking jurors Wednesday in Bridgeport federal court.

Offerman played for the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and other teams during a 15-year major league career that ended in 2005. He's being sued by former minor league catcher Johnathan Nathans.

Offerman was playing for the minor league Long Island Ducks in 2007 in a major league comeback bid when he was hit by a pitch, charged the mound and hit two Bridgeport Bluefish players with his bat including Nathans.

Nathans suffered a head injury and sued Offerman and the Ducks for $4.8 million.
