Philly Phanatic Gets Ethered

 |  June 24, 2011

This video literally had me in tears.  Pretty much the Philly Phanatic got ethered my a foul ball at a minor league game.  The best part is that he was legitimately injured and everyone is just laughing and smiling in his face.  Patting him on the back and fist pumping while he is collapsing.  Typical Philly fans.  Everyone knows mascot’s aren’t real people.  Classic.

Daily News– The Phillie Phanatic was taken to the hospital after being struck by a foul ball at an IronPigs baseball game at Coca-Cola Park here.

A spokeswoman for Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest told The Morning Call that Tom Burgoyne, the man inside the Philadelphia Phillies mascot’s costume, was treated in the emergency room Wednesday night and later released.
