Man sues, says foul ball at Wrigley blinded him in one eye

Wrigley Field is second only to Fenway Park as the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball. But until recently, it's been a pretty lonely place in October. The 102-year-old ballpark known as the "Friendly Confines" has never seen its home team -- the Chicago Cubs -- win the World Series.

CHICAGO – A man is suing the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball after he was struck in the face by a foul ball at Wrigley Field and left blind in one eye is suing the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that 60-year-old John “Jay” Loos of the Schaumburg says in the lawsuit filed by the Clifford Law Offices that he was sitting near the field during an August 29 game at Wrigley when he was struck.

The lawsuit follows a number of incidents in which fans have been hit by foul balls, prompting calls for teams to install more safety netting at stadiums.

Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney said recently on a radio program that the Cubs would extend safety netting at Wrigley.
