A woman sitting behind home plate at a Philadelphia Phillies game Monday night is recovering from facial injuries she suffered when she was hit by a flying hot dog.
The errant hot dog was wrapped in duct tape (to keep it intact) and launched by the team's mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, as part of a routine seen at games for years.
Unfortunately this time, Kathy McVay was unable to catch or deflect the projectile because of an injured shoulder. She was struck just below her right eye with enough force to knock off her glasses.
She even had to get a CT scan to make sure she didn't have a concussion.
"It just came out of nowhere. And hard," McVay told Philadelphia TV station WPVI.
The Phillies have reached out to Kathy and apologized.
