A man is suing the Kansas City Royals after an incident where the mascot, Slugger, threw a hot dog at a man's eye, leaving him with a detached retina.
The incident took place during a game last year where Slugger was launching hot dogs to fans using a hot dog launcher. Eventually he put the gun down and started tossing the weiners by hand. Unfortunately one was thrown at John Coomer who was struck directly in the eye (good aim?).
Coomer's complaint says that the mascot wasn't trained properly and was recklessly throwing hot dogs into the stands and is suing for $25k for negligence and battery.
Since the incident, Coomer has developed cataracts.
Wonder if he ate the hot dog or took it to go...[TMZ]
