Royals mascot Sluggerr is headed back to court. A Missouri appeals court reversed a lower court’s decision in a lawsuit filed by John Coomer of Overland Park against the Royals and the mascot. Coomer alleges he suffered a detached retina and needed three surgeries when he was hit by a hot dog that Sluggerr shot from an air gun. The court ruled being hit by a hot dog is not a well-known risk of attending a baseball game.
