Man dies at Texas Rangers game

Falls over wall in baseball stands while catching a fly ball

by

A man died in Arlington, Texas on Thursday after falling out of the stands at a Texas Rangers baseball game. The man was trying to catch a baseball headed in his direction by leaning over the bleachers, when he went over the wall and fell six metres to the ground, fire officials report.  A nearby fan tried to grab the man as he went over. He was conscious when paramedics escorted him off the field on a stretcher, but he died shortly after. His young son—whom he sat with in the stands—was uninjured. Sources say the man caught the ball before he fell.
