Phillies fan injured when Phanatic shoots hot dog into stands

Phillies Fan Hurt After Being Shot in Face by Phillie Phanatic's Hot Dog Cannon Phillies fan injured after Phillie Phanatic's flying hot dog hit her in the face

Wielding his ceremonial hot dog cannon, the Phanatic fired a shot and accidentally injured Phillies fan Kathy McVay when an errant hot dog hit her right between the eyes.

Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon is synomous with Phillies games.

McVay told WPVI television that a pre-existing shoulder injury prevented her from batting away the hot dog, which knocked off her eyeglasses.

"I think it just came so fast. And hard", she said.

But on Monday as the Phillies hosted the St. Louis Cardinals, that task went horribly awry for the Phillie Phanatic.

McVay was seated behind home plate when the Phanatic rolled onto the field on a mobile hot dog launcher, as he (it?) has been doing for over a decade.

"And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! And hard", McVay tells WPVI. And it just hit me like that and I didn't even realize it. The fan did end up with a small hematoma in her eye, and bruises on her face. "It's going to go down the side of my face". She does not plan to bring any legal action, unlike a Royals fan who sued that team over a similar incident in 2009. We're told the Phanatic feels bad about what happened.

After her ordeal, does she have some words of caution for her fellow baseball fans?

"When I tell my brothers, they started laughing", she said to NBC10.

Plus McVay is taking it in stride, syaing if it "makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine".
