Every summer we read tragic headlines about fans severely injured, or in one recent case, killed, by foul balls at Major League Baseball ballparks. After every one of those incidents, fans and players would clamor for more protection while MLB would typically stay on the sidelines -- refusing to release any official numbers on how many fans are injured. Our Investigative Unit set out to find those numbers. Combining a variety of sources and methods, we identified 808 reports of fan injuries across all 30 MLB ballparks from 2012-2019.
