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 ball sailed to the first base side of home plate and over the protective netting into the Loge Level, where it struck Goldbloom. We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs. Goldbloom.

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.

In the 150-year history of Major League Baseball, there have been only two reported cases of such deaths.

Instances of fans dying after being struck by balls leaving the play area are uncommon in baseball.

The last was in 1970, also at Dodger Stadium, when a 14-year-old boy was struck and killed by a foul ball.

Though not reported by news outlets, the family said in an emailed death announcement, "While the end came suddenly by a foul ball at Dodgers (sic) Stadium, she had a long lovely and blessed life".

The second instance of a fan dying after being struck by a ball was the case of Clarence Stagemyer, 32, who was hit in the head by a thrown ball on September 29, 1943, at Griffith Stadium in Washington.

Goldbloom's death came during a season which saw MLB install more protective netting throughout the league. She was immediately rushed to the hospital.
