Phillies fan injured when Phanatic shoots hot dog into stands

Phillies fan injured by Phanatic's flying hot dog

In between one inning during every home game at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillie Phanatic will drive around the edge of the playing field shooting hot dogs into the stands from a pneumatic gun - a hot dog cannon, if you will - mounted on an ATV.

McVay told the station she doesn't plan any legal action against the Phillies, who contacted her Tuesday to apologize. McVay said she has a small hematoma in her eye, and that her face is sore and must be iced throughout the day. "It came out of nowhere - and hard". "And mostly, it's going to get worse before it gets better", McVay said. "I understand a baseball, but not a hot dog", she said with a quiet laugh.

Battling a shoulder injury that will require surgery, McVay was unable to catch or deflect the hot dog, which was wrapped in duct tape so it wouldn't disintegrate upon launch. "It gives people a good laugh, and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine". Sources close to the team also told Bloomquist that the Phanatic "feels terrible" about causing her injuries. 'Just to be aware, because you never know.
