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.
