Kathy McVay, a huge Philadelphia Phillies fan, was attending a game Monday night when the team's mascot, the Phille Phanatic, pulled out his customary hot dog launcher and began shooting the dogs into the stands behind home plate, where McVay was sitting. The hot dog struck McVay in the face, knocking her glasses off.

Kathy McVay of Plymouth Meeting underwent a CAT scan, but did not suffer a concussion, according to WPVI. "The hot dog bounced off my face and into the other seat", she said.

McVay said the Phillies reached out to her on Tuesday to apologize, and they have offered her tickets to a future game when she wants to return. A shoulder injury kept her from catching the hot dog or swatting it away.

His allegedly well-intentioned bazooka blast "hit me like a ton of bricks", said, McVay, who had to make a trip to the emergency room.

"Just to be aware, because you never know", McVay told ABC 6.

She was cleared, but sustained a small hematoma in her eye, an injury which needs to be iced every 20 minutes.

She also expressed an understanding of the potential humor to be found in her plight, despite her injuries. "It gives people a good laugh, and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine", said McVay.

In 2010, a fan sued the Phanatic claiming the Philadelphia mascot injured her knees when the creature climbed onto her legs at a minor league game. We're told the Phanatic feels bad about what happened.
