Man who was blinded in eye by foul ball sues Cubs

A man who was struck by a foul ball during a Chicago Cubs game has sued the club and Major League Baseball.

Loos, of Schaumburg, was hit in the left eye by the foul ball and has since gone blind in the eye, the law firm says.

To ensure adequate security for Cubs fans, metal detectors are in place at Wrigley Field. The ball, which travelled into the stands at over 100 miles per hour, sent shockwaves through the baseball world and prompted reactions from all corners as the league looks to improve safety.

I believe we can deliver that. "But whatever happens we can deal with the Friday night, and we can deal with the Saturday night". We know we can compete with anyone. "Whoever we get, it's a tough game, very tough", Hudson said .

Mitch Dudek and Nader Issa of the Chicago Sun-Times reported Loos' seat was only a few rows behind the Pirates' dugout in foul territory down the first-base line.

Loos isn't the first to complain about the lack of safety netting.

Loos, who lives in Chicago, says fans are the life-blood of Major League Baseball and that there should be nothing more important than their safety.

"I knew foul balls go into the stands", Loos said.

The Cubs had previously said they plan to extend netting at least 30 feet down each of the foul lines at the iconic ballpark next season. He added that they would redouble their efforts on this important issue.

"I had no idea that you were subjected to such missiles", said Loos, whose eye was heavily bandaged.

While the Chicago Cubs are facing the Washington Nationals in the playoffs, they reportedly are also facing a lawsuit from a fan. And on Monday, an attorney for Loos, Colin Dunn, said he'd contacted the Cubs and was encouraged by what they said. John "Jay" Loos is seeking at least $50,000 in damages. Ten MLB clubs have already expanded netting but there are 20 more that continue to use the current netting, which extends only behind home plate.
