Man Sues MLB, Cubs After Going Blind in One Eye Following Wrigley Field Line Drive

A day after an injured Schaumburg man announced he was suing the Cubs and Major League Baseball for not having enough netting at Wrigley Field, the City Council Finance Committee has backed a resolution urging both the Cubs and the White Sox to put up more safety barriers.

John Loos, 60, of suburban Chicago was sitting "close to the field" and was then hit at the Cubs' Aug. 29 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to the Sun-Times.

And the former Hull City playmaker is confident that with the mixture of both young and experienced players in the squad they could aim higher than their previous performance where they exited the tournament in the second round. "I am sure you will have a great trip there".

"I had no idea that you were subjected to such missiles.... said Loos, whose eye was heavily bandaged". In addition to calling on the Chicago teams "to exceed such minimum guidelines", the resolution also asks the Cubs and Sox to consider doing away with spectator "assumption of risk" policies that protect the ballclubs from liability if a fan in the stands gets hurt.

The resolution wouldn't require the Cubs or White Sox to make any changes at their stadiums but would only publicly encourage them to install more protection for fans to prevent others being hit by foul balls or wayward bats. "It's too late for me but Major League Baseball must fix this after the playoffs - not next year, but now".

"Every year we hear stories about people who suffer serious injuries from foul balls", said Loos.
