Fan injured by Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon during game

The Phillie Phanatic greets fans during a game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia

So the ballpark snack drilled her right in the face.

Thankfully, McVay has maintained a sense of humor throughout this whole hot dog debacle, and she doesn't mind if others find it amusing, too. Her facial injury requires ice every 20 minutes. "And hard", McVay told Philadelphia TV station WPVI.

She left the game to receive medical attention and was diagnosed with a small hematoma.

As well, according to Yahoo those flying dogs are wrapped in duct tape to prevent them from, I dunno, coming apart upon reentering the atmosphere.

The fan isn't planning any legal action against the Phillies, but the team said she will receive free tickets for another game when healthy.

"Just to be aware, because you never know", McVay told ABC 6. In 2012, another fan filed suit when the Phanatic allegedly flung her into a pool while she was sitting on a lounge chair at her sister's wedding.

Now that the public knows she's OK, McVay can bank on people getting a decent laugh out of this one.

"It gives people a good laugh", McVay told 6 ABC Philadelphia, "and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that's fine". We're told the Phanatic feels bad about what happened.

A Philadelphia Phillies fan has been hospitalized after being hit in the face - not with a foul ball, but a flying hot dog.

McVay has a message for fans at future games so they avoid meeting a similar fate.
