Woman left with hematoma after copping a flying hotdog to the face

The green-furred mascot accidentally sent a woman to the hospital Monday, after he hit her in the face by shooting a hot dog into the crowd at Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park.

Kathy McVay told the Associated Press she was sitting near home plate when a hot dog wrapped in duct tape struck her in the face.

"It just came out of nowhere", Kathy McVay, of Plymouth Meeting, told WPVI-TV.

Mickelson Steps Out of Character at U.S. Open
What everyone might remember most about Mickelson's time here in Southampton is his freakish actions on hole No. 13. At that time, I just didn't feel like going back and forth, hitting the same shot over.

According to 6 ABC's report, a spokesman said that the Phanatic feels awful about the whole ordeal, and the Phillies organization has reached out to invite McVay to a game when she is ready to return to the ballpark.

She was cleared, but sustained a small hematoma in her eye, an injury which needs to be iced every 20 minutes. "The hot dog bounced off my face and into the other seat", she said. "My glasses flew", she said. "And mostly, it's going to get worse before it gets better".

McVay added that she didn't sustain a concussion.
