Flying Hot Dog Launched At Baseball Game Leaves Woman With Black Eye

Flying Hot Dog Launched At Baseball Game Leaves Woman With Black Eye

"And hard", she told Sarah Bloomquist at ABC 6 News. Except McVay told ABC 6 that she couldn't catch the hot dog or knock it out of the air because of a shoulder injury that she is having surgery on next week.

A hot dog cannon can be a lot of fun at a baseball game, but sometimes it can be risky. "It's going to go down the side of my face".

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.

The Phillie Phanatic greets fans during a game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, July 22, 2015.

And one of them headed straight for McVay's face. "My glasses flew", McVay said.

Despite the situation, McVay has had a good attitude about the series of unfortunate events, and does not plan to take legal action against the franchise. However, she does have a message for fellow fans in the stands. "And hard", McVay said about the hot dog. "Because you never know".

McVay realizes some might get a laugh at her expense out of the situation, and she understands.

The Phillies reached out to McVay directly on Tuesday to apologize. "Because you would think you'd get hit by a baseball instead of a flying hot dog".

"It gives people a good laugh, and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine", she said.
