Fan injured by Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon during game

A hot dog cannon can be a lot of fun at a baseball game, but sometimes it can be unsafe.

You've heard of people getting by foul balls at baseball stadiums, but one Philadelphia Phillies' fan says it wasn't a ball, but a flying hot dog that left her with a black eye!

Kathy McVay of Plymouth Meeting underwent a CAT scan, but did not suffer a concussion, according to WPVI. "It came out of nowhere - and hard".

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.

But after leaving Orlando, injuries and rumors of poor work ethic over the past fews years have dogged him at every stop since.

When the Phillie Phanatic rolled out onto the field at Citizens Bank Park on Monday night in the middle of the Philadelphia Phillies' game against the St. Louis Cardinals, fans jumped to their feet. Battling a shoulder injury that will require surgery, McVay was unable to catch or deflect the hot dog, which was wrapped in duct tape so it wouldn't disintegrate upon launch.

"Just to be aware", she told WPVI.

"And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam!" "Because you never know". "It gives people a good laugh, and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine".

The baseball club have reportedly offered her free game tickets when she has recovered, but we're hoping McVay also gets free hotdogs for life. The team added that the Phanatic mascot feels "terrible" about it.
