Dodgers fan hit by foul ball died from injuries, coroner's report says

Dodger Stadium

Dodger Stadium

She and her husband of 59 years, Erwin, had a 10-game season ticket plan for the past 10 years.

A woman died as a result of being struck in the head by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium last August, according to a coroner's report obtained by ESPN. The loge level is the second deck at Dodger Stadium, so the ball just cleared the protective netting. Her eyes never opened at the hospital and a ventilator kept her breathing.

California woman Linda Goldbloom, 79, died on August 29 from an "acute intracranial hemorrhage" and a "history of blunt force trauma", according to an LA County Medical Examiner's report.

Mrs Goldbloom's death came during the first season in which all 30 Major League Baseball teams had used protective netting extending from behind the home plate to at least the far ends of both dugouts to protect fans in vulnerable sections of stadiums.

"Mr. and Mrs. Goldbloom were great Dodgers fans who regularly attended games". ESPN reports the injury occurred when Goldbloom was hit with a baseball at an August 25 game at Dodger Stadium.

The President also poked fun at the NFL's sensitivity to concussions after a woman at a 2016 rally was hit in the head. CTE has many risky effects on the brain, including confusion, anxiety, depression, and an increased risk of suicide.

"We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs. Goldbloom", the statement from the team said. The matter has been resolved between the Dodgers and the Goldbloom family.

It was unclear what exactly the team meant by resolving the matter, and the Goldbloom family refused to comment on any terms that may have been agreed to. In this case, Goldbloom was struck by a foul ball hit over the netting. Her death was ruled an accident.

Goldbloom's family declined to reveal whether legal action would be taken against the Dodgers or if an agreement had been reached with the club.

In MLB's 150-year history, there have been two previous reported instances of fans dying after being struck by balls hit into the stands.

The first time came in 1943 in a game between the Cleveland Indians and Washington Senators at Washington's Griffith Stadium.
