Is there a rest of the story to the recent award of US$850K
to a person hit by a baseball
from the bat's manufacturer?

The story says the award is because their wasn't sufficient warning labelling on the bat. Which seems crazy on the face of it considering that the bat was 60 feet, give or take, from the person who died and was, I'm assuming, not owned or even handled by the person who died. How would he have ever seen the warning?
Is there a back story like the McDonalds coffee case that isn't making it into the press?
