Fan struck in head by batted ball at Dodger game dies

A 79-year-old woman was killed when a foul ball struck her in the head at a Dodgers game during the 2018 season. Goldbloom had been sitting in the stadium's Loge Level, the level above field level, just above the area protected by netting on the first-base side.

Linda Goldbloom, 79, died August 29, ESPN reported Tuesday, citing a Los Angeles County coroner's report.

The victim's daughter noted, "Ushers came down and asked if she was all right, and she said no, then EMT came and rushed her to the hospital - she threw up in the ambulance".

On the night of August 28, Goldbloom's whole family and a rabbi gathered around her to share memories and say goodbye, before abiding by her wish that she wouldn't be kept alive by machines if doctors deemed it impossible to restore her quality of life.

She died at L.A. County-USC Medical Center.

The foul ball reportedly came in the ninth inning off the bat of Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes during a plate appearance against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen. "We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs. Goldbloom", the statement read.

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. Both the team and Goldbloom's family would not tell ESPN if any legal action or agreement had been struck in the aftermath of the incident. The team told The Associated Press there would be no further comment for now.

A 79-year-old grandmother died after a baseball hit her during a game between the LA Dodgers and San Diego Padres, a coroner in the USA has said. The push for expansion increased in 2017 after a series of spectator injuries.

Brody said she hopes to see more protective netting going forward. 'Raise it a little higher, what's the hurt in that?'
