Investigators: Man Blinded After Foul Ball Accident Sues Cubs, MLB

Share

A 60-year-old man is suing the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball after being struck by a foul ball that left him blind in his left eye.

He was rushed to the hospital, but doctors were unable to restore his sight in his left eye.

Mitch Dudek and Nader Issa of the Chicago Sun-Times reported Loos' seat was only a few rows behind the Pirates' dugout in foul territory down the first-base line.

The issue has gotten more attention recently due to a handful of high-profile stadium injuries.

"It broke my heart to see that girl in NY".

"I knew foul balls go into the stands", Loos said.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, the lawsuit states that John "Jay" Loos was struck in the face by a line drive while sitting behind the first-base dugout during the August 29 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field.

"Every year we hear stories about people who suffer serious injuries from foul balls".
