"I knew foul balls go into the stands", Loos said. "I guess I had no idea how fast they went". At one point during the August 29 game, a line-drive foul ball went into the stands and slammed into Loos's face.
The injury left him temporarily blind, and he may lose his left eye.
Loos has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball for fifty thousand dollars in damages.
His injuries have required three surgeries, and will require "at least two more", he said.
Now, he's suing Major League Baseball and the Cubs franchise, which he accuses of negligence for not installing enough protective netting to stop foul balls before they rocket into the stands.
"Fans are the life-blood of Major League Baseball (and) there should be nothing more important than their safety", said Loos, a resident of the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg.
But Loos said Major League Baseball should do more to protect fans.
In his lawsuit, Loos is asking the Cubs to expand their safety netting.
The Chicago Cubs have been through the rollercoaster of the postseason before, and despite blowing a lead and losing Saturday's Game 2 to the Washington Nationals, it was business as usual at the Friendly Confines on Sunday.
