A fan at a Texas Rangers game died Thursday night after falling from the stands while reaching for a baseball tossed his way by All-Star outfielder Josh Hamilton.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office said Friday the victim was 39-year-old firefighter Shannon Stone of Brownwood. City Manager Bobby Rountree said Mr. Stone had been a firefighter for nearly 18 years in Brownwood, located 150 miles southwest of Arlington.
Mr. Stone fell about 20 feet onto concrete Thursday night, tumbling over the left-field railing after catching the ball and falling into an area out of sight from the field as the Rangers faced Oakland. Mr. Stone’s young son witnessed the fall during the second inning.
