Tragedy at the Ball Park in Arlington
Today a father tried to catch a souvenir baseball for his son and lost his life. I’ve got to believe that MLB just may do something to stop such tragedies from happening again in the future. Could it be that they prohibit players from tossing balls into the stands? Is it possible that more safety features are placed in ballparks that keep fans from falling over railings to their deaths?
What an awful tragedy. Poor Josh Hamilton has got to be feeling very distraught over this. My heartfelt condolences to the family of this man and specifically his young son on the scene. The deceased has been identified as Lt. Shannon Stone, an 18-year veteran of the Brownwood, Texas Fire Department.
