This is taking food delivery a bit too far.
A woman suffered facial injuries when the Phillie Phanatic fired a hot dog into the crowd with his cannon during Monday night’s game at Citizens Bank Park.
“And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. My glasses flew,” Kathy McVay, a Plymouth Meeting resident, originally told 6 ABC’s Sarah Bloomquist about the incident.
McVay said she went to a hospital and underwent a CAT scan to make sure that she didn't suffer a concussion.
“I have a small hematoma in my eye,” McVay said. “And mostly, it's going to get worse before it gets better. It's going to go down the side of my face.”
Per the report, the Phillies did reach out to McVay to apologize and “the Phanatic feels terrible about what happened” (although we’re not exactly sure how he explained that sentiment).
To her credit, McVay understands the ridiculous nature of her injury and is taking it all in stride.
"When I tell my brothers, they started laughing," she said to NBC10. "It's funny, it's a story I can tell people. My only thing is just to warn people just to be careful. Because you would think you'd get hit by a baseball instead of a flying hot dog."
Now that the public knows she’s OK, McVay can bank on people getting a decent laugh out of this one.
On May 20, Chase Utley indicated that his Dodger teammates have started calling him dad, so it stands to reason that on Father’s Day, they would come bearing gifts for the oldest position player in the National League.
Utley posted these two photos to his Instagram Story today showing gifts from teammate Kike Hernandez, which includes one awesome T-shirt.
In addition to his fake teammate son, Utley also has two sons, six-year-old Benjamin and three-year-old Max, who got to take part in a very special art project for their dad. Chase gave his sons a pair of white cleats to color on, which he wore for today’s game against the Giants.
They turned out how you’d expect, which is a pretty cool thing for Chase to wear on Father’s Day.
If you can’t get enough cuteness from members of the 2008 Phillies, there’s a video of Cole Hamels having tea with his five-year-old daughter, Reeve, that will melt your heart.
Baseball is a sport that can uniquely bring families together, whether someone is your real dad or just the father figure in the clubhouse.
OK, so the caption of Fox Sports Southwest's video is maybe a little misleading.
"The absolute CUTEST thing you will see this Fathers Day is Cole Hamels having tea with his daughter!" the caption reads.
I'm guessing that, if you're a dad, the cutest thing you'll see this Father's Day is your own kid(s).
But man, this is an adorable video.
Former Phillie (and 2008 World Series MVP) Cole Hamels and his wife Heidi adopted five-year-old Reeve, one of their four children, from Ethiopia as a baby after she was abandoned at birth, found alone in a field by the police and placed in an orphanage. In the video, she asks Cole a series of rapid-fire questions and looks like she's having an absolute blast hanging out with her dad. So does Cole.
"If you were retired, what would you do?" Reeve asks.
"How 'bout I'd just like to be a dad, would that be good?" Hamels responds.
