Cubs prepare for Game 3 with brunch and football

According to Perez, Loos' lawyer said his client was hit during Chicago's August 29 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field.

Die-hard Chicago Cubs fan John "Jay" Loosis now imploring the team and Major League Baseball to immediately install more nets protecting fans in crowds after he was hit in the face by a ball in August, causing him to immediately go blind in one eye.

"In terms of the liability issue, I kind of fell off on that part of it, because I'm not exactly schooled on exactly what we should be doing when an accident happens inside of a private place - a stadium", he said.

Loos has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball for fifty thousand dollars in damages.

Wrigley Field is not the only park in the Major League to be lacking on netting, something Loos said could have easily prevented his injury. His complaint also alleges that more than 1,700 fans are injured by baseballs entering the stands at high rates of speed, including a toddler who was injured in NY.

According to the Clifford Law Offices, who are representing Loos, both the Cubs and Yankees management are already looking into extending the safety netting at their home fields.

While the Chicago Cubs are facing the Washington Nationals in the playoffs, they reportedly are also facing a lawsuit from a fan.
