BIG FAN DIES AFTER FALLING OFF A 20 FOOT DROP
Mon, 11 Jul 2011 02:51 PM EDT

A male fan has died after he fell over the outer railing and landed on the concrete below him behind the out of town scoreboard at the Rangers Ballpark during the second innings yesterday in a game between Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers.

The CEO of the Rangers Nolan Ryan said in a statement “We are deeply saddened to learn that the man who fell has passed away as a result of this tragic accident,” “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

The Rangers later closed their clubhouse to people from the media after they won the match 6-0. The name of the fan has yet to be released because they are not sure if his family members have been notified yet. However, the sadder part is that the fan’s young son accompanied him to the game. The wall of the left field was a good 14 feet high and the fan fell head first over this wall which is around a few feet higher i.e. around 20 feet. There was a huge sound of gasping in the stands when the man fell which was quite similar to the accident which took place last July when a man feel from 30 feet high in the second deck of seats straight dnown to right field line while he tried to catch a ball.

The man was wearing a blue Rangers cap as well as a White Rangers shirt and was seated in the front row with his son. According to the fan next to him the man was constantly yelling at the Ranger left fielder Josh Hamilton for what was a foul ball which was hit by Conor Jackson and then ricocheted off into left field during the second innings. Hamilton threw the ball over to the fan and he leaded over to catch it and then toppled over into the space between the railing and the back of the scoreboard on the left. Odds

Ryan said “I think as any of us would be, Josh is very distraught over this as the entire team is,” “very heavy-hearted about this.”

Hargis a 50 year old fan from Taxas who was sitting next to the man that fell said “I tried to grab him, but I couldn’t,” “I tried to slow him down a little bit. He went straight down.” NFL betting lines
