A man blinded in the left eye by an errant ball in one of a series of recent baseball stadium injuries is suing Major League Baseball and the Chicago Cubs.

According to Perez, Loos' lawyer said his client was hit during Chicago's August 29 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field.

The lawsuit was filed Friday at Cook County circuit court and, as of Monday, the Cubs organization has failed to comment on the situation, according to 12UP. The Chicago Sun-Times report said Loos has undergone three surgeries, has two more coming up and may eventually need a prosthetic to replace his eye. "My life, the lives of many fans, have changed forever by Major League Baseball's failure to protect its fans".

"We´ve studied... where the balls are heading and obviously, we´ve been pulling the nets further and further", Chicago TV station WBBM reported Cubs´ business operations chief Crane Kenney as saying.

In his lawsuit, Loos is asking the Cubs to expand their safety netting. In addition to calling on the Chicago teams "to exceed such minimum guidelines", the resolution also asks the Cubs and Sox to consider doing away with spectator "assumption of risk" policies that protect the ballclubs from liability if a fan in the stands gets hurt.

"There should be nothing more important than (fan) safety".

Wrigley Field is not the only park in the Major League to be lacking on netting, something Loos said could have easily prevented his injury.
