Woman dies after being struck by foul ball at Dodger Stadium

Dodger Stadium

Linda Goldbloom was celebrating her 79th birthday and 59th wedding anniversary to her husband at a game August 25.

A woman died as a result of being struck in the head by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium last August, according to a coroner's report obtained by ESPN.

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. She was taken to the hospital.

According to the coroner's report obtained by ESPN, Linda Goldbloom died at age 79 on August 29 as a result of "acute intracranial hemorrhage" and "history of blunt force trauma".

Goldbloom's death came after the league announced last February that all 30 MLB stadiums have netting extended to the far end of each team's dugout.

The Dodgers made no mention of the incident either when it happened or upon Goldbloom's death, but when reached by ESPN, a spokesman for the team provided a statement.

The coroner said the cause of death was "acute intracranial hemorrhage due to history of blunt force trauma" and cited Goldbloom being hit in the head with the ball at Dodger Stadium as the cause of the injury.

His refusal to step down could signal a potentially long and bruising fight between Northam and his former supporters. Northam's press conference appears unlikely to quell the growing pressure from within his party for him to resign .

The Dodgers released a statement, "Mr. and Mrs. Goldbloom were great Dodgers fans who regularly attended games". On Aug. 28, her family took her off life support.

Even more protective netting at games?

Todd Frazier, who hit the foul ball that struck the girl at Yankee Stadium, was among the major proponents of increased safety measures, saying at the time: "It's the right thing to do".

The family plans to establish a fund in her memory to assist victims of such accidents and their families.

According to ESPN, Brody said she would not comment on the agreement or possible legal action between the Dodgers and the family.

This is the third recorded instance of a fan dying after being struck by a ball leaving the field of play.
