Goldbloom, a long-time Dodgers fan, was sitting in the loge level (balcony) along the first-base line when Reyes smacked a foul ball that hit the woman. She remained conscious after the hit but was transported to the hospital after telling ushers that she felt something was wrong.

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.”

“Mr. and Mrs. Goldbloom were great Dodgers fans who regularly attended games,” the team said in a statement. “We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs. Goldbloom. The matter has been resolved between the Dodgers and the Goldbloom family. We cannot comment further on this matter.”

Goldbloom is one of only three fans to die after being struck by a ball during a Major League Baseball game, but, oddly, she is the second to die at a Dodger game. The first man was killed at Griffith Stadium in Washington in 1943 and a second man died in 1970 after being struck by a fly ball at Dodger Stadium.

The league moved to protect the fans with netting and last year was the first year that every team had installed the protection. Unfortunately, Mrs. Goldbloom was sitting just beyond the netting.

Gay Sports Group Expels Martina Navratilova After She Slams Transgenders

The group also insisted that there is “no evidence at all that the average trans woman is any bigger, stronger, or faster than the average cisgender woman.”

Transgender

On Sunday, tennis legend Martina Navratilova came out 100 percent against allowing men who claim to be transgender to compete against natural-born women. By Monday, a gay sports group she belonged to expelled her over her remarks.

On Sunday, the 62-year-old tennis star formally discussed her feelings against transgender athletes being allowed acceptance under their chosen gender, calling the idea that men can compete as women “insane” and “cheating.” But her candor and considered opinion were too much for the gay advocacy group, Athlete Ally.

Athlete Ally released a statement Tuesday accusing Navratilova of being “transphobic” and adding that she “has been removed from our Advisory Board and as an Athlete Ally Ambassador, effective immediately.”

The group continued saying, “as an organization committed to eradicating root causes of homophobia and transphobia in and through sports, we are deeply troubled by the misinformation and stigma she is perpetuating and hope that the correct information is disseminated.”

The advocacy group also accused the tennis legend of making statements “based on false data.”

For instance, the group took issue with Navratilova’s characterization of men who “decide to be female.”

“Navratilova referred to trans women as men who ‘decide to be female,’ and that to allow them to compete with women is ‘cheating and unfair.’ First of all, trans women are women, period. They did not decide their gender identity any more than someone decides to be gay, or to have blue eyes,” Athlete Ally wrote in its statement.

The group also insisted that there is “no evidence at all that the average trans woman is any bigger, stronger, or faster than the average cisgender woman.”

Actor Don Cheadle Tries to Troll Trump with Russian Hockey Jersey on SNL

Clearly, Cheadle is linking Trump to Russia and even as much as saying the president “plays for the other team.”

Hollywood

Activist actor Don Cheadle wore several theme shirts during his forgettable stint on NBC’s Saturday Night Live last weekend, including a Russian hockey jersey meant to needle President Trump for having ties to Russia.

At one point the loud twitter warrior wore a t-shirt reading “protect trans kids,” as if they aren’t being coddled all across the country by liberals eager to exploit these mentally disturbed kids in order to push a left-wing agenda on our schools.

But as the show mercifully ended for the night, Cheadle came out in a jersey reminiscent of the old Soviet Union with Donald Trump’s name on the back.

Clearly, Cheadle is linking Trump to Russia and even as much as saying the president “plays for the other team.”

Of course, like all liberals, Cheadle is blissfully ignorant of the truth that not one shred of evidence has been found to link Donald Trump or his campaign to any Russian efforts to try and affect the 2016 presidential election.

Despite the millions wasted by so-called “special counsel” Robert Mueller, not one person has been found to have ties to Russia and no one thus far brought up on charges have been accused of the one thing the left has been desperate to prove; that Trump “colluded” with Russia.

Here is video of the empty-headed actor’s foolishness:
