Home Run Derby

I’m sitting here watching a recap of the home run derby and I see that they have kids apparently as young as 7-8 out there shagging balls in the outfield. Is it just me or is it a remarkably bad idea to have a 7-8 year old kid catching major league fly balls in the outfield? Its pretty suprising to me that the lawyers didn’t put the kibosh on that idea. All it takes is some kid to miss a huge fly ball and take it on the noggin for a multi-million dollar wrongful death suit.
