Dodgers dodger stadium dodger fan death linda goldbloom linda goldbloom death

A foul ball during a game between the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium has been officially determined as the cause of death by a fan who died in August, just days after being struck.

Goldbloom's death came during a season which saw MLB install more protective netting throughout the league.

Linda Goldbloom's death August 29 was ruled an accident by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

'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, ' Goldbloom's daughter, Jana Brody said.

The second incident occurred at Dodger Stadium in 1970 at a game between the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.

Goldbloom, a long-time Dodgers fan, was sitting in the loge level (balcony) along the first-base line when a foul ball that hit the woman.

Linda Goldbloom was celebrating her 79th birthday and 59th wedding anniversary with her husband at a game August 25 when a ball hit by San Diego's Franmil Reyes traveled over an area protected by netting and struck Goldbloom in the head. Goldbloom's seat was in Section 106, Row C, Seat 5 - an area above the netting, OTL reported. She died a few days later after her family took her off machines.

'Mr. and Mrs. Goldbloom were great Dodgers fans who regularly attended games.

In a statement, the Dodgers said: "We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs Goldbloom".

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.

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.

The foul ball reportedly came in the ninth inning off the bat of a Padres player during a plate appearance against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen. The push for expansion increased in 2017 after a series of spectator injuries.

Brody said she hopes to see more protective netting going forward.
