​Add to the list of hot dog dangers: cataracts and detached retinas.

A Kansas City Royals fan claims that a flying hot dog hit his eye during a game in September of last year and caused permanent damage. In his defense, he was sitting 6 rows back from the dugout after Slugger, the Royals mascot did a slick, behind-the-back maneuver, striking the unfortunate gentleman right in the peeper. Ok, so it’s a bit of a tough sell, but he’ll have to sell it to a judge in court. John Coomer, the injured one-eyed fan is suing the baseball team for $25,000 in damages after he underwent two eye surgeries to correct his hot dog injury.

The moral of this story: never underestimate the power of a weenie.
