Phillies fan injured by flying hot dog launched by Phanatic

Phillies fan injured by flying hot dog launched by Phanatic

McVay told WPVI television that a pre-existing shoulder injury prevented her from batting away the hot dog, which knocked off her eyeglasses.

"I have a small hematoma under my eye", McVay explained WPVI TV in Philadelphia.

The big green mascot came out with his hot dog launcher, and was about to launch them into the stands.

McVay expressed a similar notion in offering others this advice about attending Phillies games: "Just to be aware, because you never know". But the Phanatic's flying meat mobile helped injure one fan at Monday's game. "It's going to go down the side of my face", she told ABC 6.

Mexico fans trigger "artificial earthquake" after World Cup goal
Germany had little answer to Mexico's swashbuckling approach and Werner admits they were good value for all three points. They took on the cup-holders on Sunday afternoon, and 35 minutes into the game they managed to take the lead.

According to 6 ABC's report, a spokesman said that the Phanatic feels bad about the whole ordeal, and the Phillies organization has reached out to invite McVay to a game when she is ready to return to the ballpark. The team has reached out to apologize. The man suffered a detached retina and sued for negligence, though a jury found neither him nor the Royals at fault in 2015.

To her credit, McVay understands the ridiculous nature of her injury and is taking it all in stride. "And hard", McVay said.

"I mean, you would think - I understand a baseball, but not a hot dog".

Kathy McVay said she was sitting near home plate at Citizens Bank Park during the game Monday, June 18 vs. the Cardinals when Phillies' team mascot Phille Phanatic kicked off the team's longstanding tradition of launching hot dogs into the stands.
