A 79-year-old woman was killed when a foul ball struck her in the head at a Dodgers game during the 2018 season.
Linda Goldbloom was struck on August 25 and died on August 29, just a week after her 79th birthday, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.
The coroner's report lists the cause of death as "acute intracranial hemorrhage due to history of blunt force trauma".
Per a coroner's report, Linda Goldbloom died of "acute intracranial hemorrhage due to history of blunt force trauma", stemming from a line drive during a game between the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers on August 25.

The Dodgers made no mention of the incident either when it happened or upon Goldbloom's death, but when reached by ESPN, a spokesman for the team provided a statement. The team told The Associated Press there would be no further comment for now.
