Oh NOZ! The Phillie Phanatic Got Injured By Foul Ball

One of the most famous mascots in the world of sports is the Phillie Phanatic and earlier this week, the Phanatic had a scare during a minor league baseball game which sent him to the hospital.

The Phanatic was in Allentown, Pennslyvania for the “World Famous Phillie Phanatic Appearance” with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Triple-A affiliate of the Phillies) on Wednesday when a foul ball was sent into the stands and hit the Phanatic:

The man behind the mascot costume, Tom Burgoyne went to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest hospital and thankfully was discharged later that night.

Long Live the Phanatic!
