Shock Video: Texas Rangers Fan Dies After Trying to Catch Ball

Reigning AL MVP Josh Hamilton grabbed the foul ball that ricocheted into left field and tossed it into the stands, as he has countless times before.

Shannon Stone, who was at the game with his young son, caught the ball but tumbled over a railing and plunged 20 feet onto concrete. The 39-year-old firefighter from Brownwood died at a hospital a short time later, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
