ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A medical examiner has identified the man who died after falling from the stands in Arlington, Texas while trying to reach for a baseball.
Firefighter Shannon Stone attended last night's Oakland-Texas game with his young son when All-Star outfieldier Josh Hamilton tossed a foul ball in his direction. The 39 year-old caught the ball and then tumbled over the outfield railing, falling about 20 feet onto concrete.
A man who sat next to Stone tried to grab him but couldn't.
Stone went into cardiac arrest on the way to the hospital and was pronounced dead shortly after.
