SUZANN STONE REACHES OUT TO RANGERS OUTFIELDER JOSH HAMILTON
Thu, 29 Dec 2011 03:57 PM EST

The mother of a Texas fireman who died reaching to catcha baseball thrown by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton this past summer said Wednesday she would like the star player to keep tossing keepsakes into the stands. NFL odds

SuZann Stone claimed that taking home a game ball is a special memory. Her plea to Hamilton was in a letter sent just after 39-year-old Shannon Stone died when he rumpled over a railing and dropped 20 feet onto concrete July 7 in a game at Rangers Ballpark.

Shannon Stone was attempting to catch the ball for his 6-year-old child, Cooper, who experienced the situation.

“I just failed to want him to stop,” SuZann Stone claimed. “How sad that would be because that is what young boys and their daddies go for. This was just an accident.”

The mother’s letter to Hamilton was first reported in the NY Times Magazine.

Rangers speaker John Blake said attempts were being made to reach Hamilton for comment.

Shannon Stone had been a firefighter in Brownwood for Eighteen years. He and Cooper went to the game with the intent of getting a souvenir ball. They even stopped on the way to the game to get a new glove for Cooper.

SuZann Stone was watching the game on television that night, scanning the stands where Cooper had told her they’d be sitting. She didn’t see the decline and learned of her son’s death from his bro.

SuZann Stone knows how special it is to get a ball at a Rangers game. When Shannon Stone was about Twelve or Thirteen, she and her man took him to a Rangers game where he got to watch his favourite player — 3rd baseman Chum Bell.

“That was Shannon’s hero at the time,” she revealed.

Bell hit a bad ball that looked like it wouldn’t be anywhere close to where the family was sitting. But the wind caught it and it came down close by where the Stones were sitting. Getting that souvenir meant the world to her son, SuZann Stone declared, coming from his favourite player.

She claimed she hasn’t heard back from Hamilton since writing to him.

“Really, I did not expect that I might. I wanted him to let him know our heartfelt sorrow for him,” she revealed. “No way did we feel he was accountable for the accident. He was doing a really nice thing and it just failed to turn out right.”

Cooper is doing as well as can be expected, his grandmama said. He and his ma, Jenny Stone, continue to get “phenomenal” support from Brownwood residents and firefighters.

“We have good days and we have bad days but thru the holidays it’s been pretty hard,” SuZann Stone expounded.

The family’s religion helps lessen the discomfort of her son’s death, she announced.

“We will see him again,” SuZann Stone asserted. “Until that time it just leaves a pretty big void in our lives.”
