  • Heads up! The Phillie Phanatic goes into launch mode at a 2016 game

McVay said, "I have a small hematoma in my eye". The Phanatic shoots real hot dogs, but they are wrapped in duct tape.

Kathy McVay was seated behind home plate when the Phanatic started shooting hot dogs into the crowd when suddenly one was headed straight for her head.

A woman has made a trip to the emergency room after being hit by a hotdog shot out of a cannon by large green bird at a baseball game. "It just came out of nowhere. I understand a baseball, but not a hot dog, ' she said with a quiet laugh".

For her part, at least right now, she doesn't seem interested in a lawsuit. "It's going to go down the side of my face", Ms. McVay noted. Fans who attended Monday night's Phillies/Cardinals game at Citizens Bank Park saw something they nearly certainly had never seen before: The Phillie Phanatic launched a hot dog into a spectator's eye.

The Phillies reached out to McVay directly on Tuesday to apologize. According to his official biography, the Phanatic is originally from the Galápagos Islands and is the Phillies' biggest fan.

One of the most endearing traits of the national pastime is that every time you go to a ballgame, you might see something you've never seen before. She said, "It gives people a good laugh, and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine".

She also expressed an understanding of the potential humor to be found in her plight, despite her injuries. They've offered McVay tickets to another game when she feels better and wants to return.

A Phillies fan was hit in the face by a flying hot dog from the Phanatic's iconic hot dog gun on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park, and was sent to the hospital.

To her credit, McVay understands the ridiculous nature of her injury and is taking it all in stride.
