After a Missouri Supreme Court decision, a second Jackson County jury is hearing a negligence lawsuit involving a 2009 incident in which Sluggerrr, the Royals mascot, tossed a hot dog into the Kauffman Stadium stands. John Coomer says the hot dog hit him in the left eye, resulting in a detached retina, a later cataract procedure and a likely lifetime of monitoring possible glaucoma.
