Jurors are hearing testimony in a lawsuit against the Kansas City Royals by a Kansas man who was struck in the eye by a foil-wrapped hotdog flung by the team’s mascot.
A photo of St. Louis Cardinals mascot Fredbird holding a “police lives matter” sign was posted to a police association Facebook page before the team asked that it be taken down.
A man who has been the Kansas City Chiefs’ mascot for more than two decades was in stable condition after being seriously injured this weekend while rehearsing a zip line routine at Arrowhead Stadium.
If it had been a foul ball or broken bat that struck John Coomer in the eye as he watched a Kansas City Royals game, it’s unlikely the courts would have forced the team to pay for the surgeries and suffering he’s endured.
John Coomer of Overland Park, Kan., sued for more than $25,000 after he says he suffered a detached retina when he was clocked by the foil-wrapped wiener at a September 2009 game.
