Fan Injured by Hot Dog Suing MLB Team
KANSAS CITY — A baseball fan is suing the Kansas City Royals after he was injured by an usual object at a game.
According to Fox News Insider, the man, from Overland Park, Kansas, says he was injured at a September 2009 game when the team’s mascot threw hot dogs into the crowd.
The man says the hot dog, which was wrapped in foil, struck his eye. He claims he had to have two surgeries for a detached retina, costing $4,800.
The case will go to the Missouri Supreme Court to decide if the “baseball rule” that protects the team from being sued for injuries applies in this instance.
