The Los Angeles Dodgers is finally reporting five months late that a woman was killed after being struck by a foul ball at L.A.’s Dodgers Stadium.

Linda Goldbloom was killed last August by a foul ball hit by San Diego Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes, USA Today reported.

The 70-year-old woman died on August 29 from an “acute intracranial hemorrhage” after taking the blow to the head four days earlier. Her death was ruled an accident.

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.

LeBron James And Other Members Of The Lakers Sport Mock MAGA Hats

Published

Lebron james

On Tuesday evening, prior to the first-round playoff series game against the Portland Trailblazers, members of the Los Angeles Lakers, including NBA legend LeBron James, rocked mock MAGA caps which had the words, “Great Again,” crossed out and replaced with “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.” James, easily one of the biggest influences in modern sports, also wore a shirt that said “By Any Means” on it, while also posting up the slogan on Instagram, writing, “By Any Means!! Lets Get It #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor.” Now, to be fair, what happened to Taylor is absolutely horrific and absolutely uncalled for. The woman was shot while in her bed and there’s definitely reason to be angry about this situation being unresolved. The real issue here is whether or not it’s acceptable to participate in political activism while on the job. Do we really need to politicize sports like we have the rest of life? via The Daily Wire: Some of the other members of the Lakers squad who donned the mock MAGA hats included Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, Jared Dudley, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo, Danny Green, and JR Smith, as The Daily Mail reported. After the game, James told reporters, “You know the situation that’s going on in Louisville, Kentucky. An innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor. A woman who had a bright future. Her life was taken away from her. There’s been no arrests, there’s been no justice, not only for her, but for her family … We want to continue to shed light on that situation because it’s just unjust. That’s what it’s about.” https://twitter.com/NBAonTNT/status/1295942946198417408 Last month, James told reporters at a press conference, “The same energy that we have on the floor is the same energy that we have towards having justice for Breonna Taylor…

President Trump Says That If Biden Stands Up And Breathes, Media Will Call It ‘One Of The Greatest Debate Performances In History’

Published

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt recently conducted an interview with President Donald Trump in which he asked him about the debates coming down the pike with Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden, and what Trump had to say is both hilarious and sadly true. Trump said, “You know the way it is, the fake news. If he stands up and if he is able to breathe, and if he’s able to walk off the platform, they’ll say it was one of the greatest debate performances in history.” He’s right, you know. The mainstream media will ignore any idiotic or nonsensical things Biden, in his declining mental state, might say, and just as they made a big deal of his ability to ride a bike, acting as if that was all it took to verify his fitness for office, they will play up the fact he showed up as some sort of grand accomplishment. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Hewitt prompted Trump by asserting, “The expectations of the vice president are being lowered by the hour. I think if he just stands up for an hour, that will lead the media to declare him a winner. I appreciate that you nominated me to be a moderator. I don’t think the debate commission will give you anyone remotely close to being as tough on Biden as they are on you. Do you think they’re lowering expectations for Joe Biden for the debates?” Trump answered, “Well, I’m not lowering expectations. Everyone else is. I’m not. I don’t do that. Look, whoever shows up, I watched him with Bernie Sanders, and he did okay. I wouldn’t say he was Winston Churchill.” “Yes, he did,” the host replied. “But he got through,” Trump continued. “But you know the way it is, the fake news. If…
