  • Man Sues MLB Cubs After Going Blind From Foul Liner to Eye at Wrigley

He alleges the Cubs organization was negligent because Wrigley Field does not have enough spectator netting, something that could have prevented a foul ball from hitting him at an August game and leaving him blind in one eye, according to the lawsuit.

"I had no idea that you were subjected to such missiles.... said Loos, whose eye was heavily bandaged". "My life, the lives of many fans, have changed forever by Major League Baseball's failure to protect its fans". "We will continue to work with Major League Baseball to discuss and explore ways to ensure the safest possible environment for our guests". Cubs spokesman Julian Green issued a statement on the lawsuit, saying, "The safety of our fans is paramount to a great game day experience", Green said.

Installing more netting and safety precautions has been a topic every single season in Major League Baseball, because there is bound to be a handful of people that end up getting severely injured from an arrant foul ball or flying bat coming at a high rate of speed during any given game.

Spokespeople from the White Sox and Cubs did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Days after the child was struck in New York, Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney said the team would extend the netting already in place by at least 30 feet down lines. He declined to elaborate.

"I never really saw it", Loos said, according to the Chicago Sun Times. "I think they care about their fans".
