Phillie Phanatic Gets Hit With Foul Ball, Stumbles Around

Via Big League Stew, with the Phillies out of town this week the Phillie Phanatic moonlighted as the mascot for the Phil's Triple-A team in Allentown. It was all fun and games until the Phanatic took a foul ball to the neck and then wobbled about the stands for a spell.

(UPDATE: Now with better video courtesy of The Fightins.)

Tom Burgoyne, who has filled the corpulent green suit since 1993, was taken to a local hospital and has been deemed "fine."
