Blue Jays fan assaulted by Jackie Robinson's "b"

This doesn’t happen every day:

A fan at the Toronto Blue Jays’ game was OK on Monday after being struck
in the right shoulder by a tumbling, metal “B” from a sign honoring
Jackie Robinson.

Could have been worse. While the Jays haven’t retired any numbers besides Robinson’s, they do have something called the “Level of Excellence” with past greats’ names posted on the fifth deck. The “Z” in Tony Fernandez is far more pointy than Robinson’s “B.”  It could have put someone’s eye out!
