Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: On Thursday evening, July 7, 2011 a Texas Rangers fan made a fatal mistake. When star outfielder Josh Hamilton threw a ball into the stands for fans, the victim reached over the railing to catch it, and lost his balance. The man — 39-year-old Shannon Stone, who was a firefighter from Brownwood, Texas — flipped over the railing of the outfield seats, falling 20 feet head-first while his horrified son looked on. A second fan tried to grab on to the victim's shirt, but could not hold on. The victim was rushed to a hospital where he died, the Arlington Fire Department said. Legendary former pitcher and Texas Rangers president Nolan Ryan said, "We are deeply saddened to learn the man who fell has passed away as a result of this tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.",,20508757,00.html
