    Fan dies after falling from stands at Rangers game in Arlington, Texas.

    A man attending a Texas Rangers game with his young son died after falling out of the stands and about 20 feet to the ground while trying to catch a baseball tossed his way Thursday night, the Rangers officials said.

    The man's son was not injured and apparently the man went over head first, straight down.

    Team President Nolan Ryan said: "We had a very tragic accident tonight and one of our fans lost their life reaching over the rail to get a ball. As an organization, and as our team members, and our staff, we're very heavy-hearted about this and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family."

    So many fans risk their safety trying to catch foul balls and balls tossed into the crowd by a player. This is such a sad story~

    The guy lost his life for a baseball, what a waste!

    If you were to list all those things you'd be willing to risk your life for, would a baseball be one of them?

    We can say goodbye to the tradition of players flipping balls into the stands.

    Douger must lead a lonely life to resort to that comment must to get some attention. I feel sorry for him.

    When I read this story last night my first thought was that he wanted to catch the ball to give to his young son.
