The 70-year-old woman died on August 29 from an "acute intracranial hemorrhage" after taking the blow to the head four days earlier.

Goldbloom, a long-time Dodgers fan, was sitting in the loge level (balcony) along the first-base line when a foul ball that hit the woman.

ESPN was able to link the death to a foul ball that came off the bat of San Diego Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes in the top of the ninth inning during a game on August 25 and hit Goldbloom in the head.

Goldbloom was rushed to the hospital after telling ushers she did not feel well.

In a statement, the Dodgers said: "We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs Goldbloom".

The Dodgers released a statement, "Mr. and Mrs. Goldbloom were great Dodgers fans who regularly attended games".

"They offered to pay the funeral expenses, but then we filed a lawsuit for wrongful death and that's when we had the mediation", Erwin Goldbloom said. After being unresponsive for the ensuing days, the family followed Goldbloom's wishes not to be kept alive by a machine if it was deemed she would not get back her quality of life.

It was unclear what exactly the team meant by resolving the matter, and the Goldbloom family refused to comment on any terms that may have been agreed to. Most clubs expanded netting to the end of the dugout. The foul ball that struck her sailed just over the netting before it struck her.

Goldbloom's family declined to reveal whether legal action would be taken against the Dodgers or if an agreement had been reached with the club.

In 2017 a two-year-old girl was injured when a foul ball hit her in the face at Yankee Stadium, while two fans have previously died.

The first time came in 1943 in a game between the Cleveland Indians and Washington Senators at Washington's Griffith Stadium. "I'd love to see the netting extended vertically, and we know it doesn't block the view", said Brody. 'Raise it a little higher, what's the hurt in that?'
