Fan Falls Rangers Park

Fan Falls Rangers ParkFan Falls Rangers Park, A fan of 24 years old was taken to a local hospital Saturday night after suffering injuries in a fall from a ladder at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The man fell about 9:45 pm, leaving the stadium after the game for the Rangers against the Angels in Los Angeles. The drop came near the Home Plate Gate.

The Rangers said the man, who fell about 21 feet, was beaten unconscious, but received immediate help from medical staff at the stadium.

Police Lt. Bobby Mason said early Sunday that investigators were trying to determine how he fell. The stairwell, near the door of his home plate view of the field, consists of a series of flights of steps leading from the upper deck seat at ground level.

“There seems to be no foul play is involved,” Mason said after talking with witnesses, including people who were with men. “There was no fight or anything like that happens.”

Mason said that he understood the man’s condition was improving after he was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center. There was some blood in the area where the man fell.

“At the moment, hopefully it will be better than I thought when he left,” said Mason.

The accident occurred before the end of the Rangers’ 8-4 loss to the Angels so that the stairwell was not full, but with the fans, said Mason.

“What we can say with certainty is, for whatever reason, falls into the top railing area between the third and second landing,” said Mason.

Ranger’s spokesman John Blake said the team had no other information or an update on the condition of man. Team president Nolan Ryan was aware of the accident.

This is the second time that a bystander injured in a fall in the park this season. On July 6, Shannon Stone Brownwood, Texas, died of wounds received in a fall out of left field trying to catch a ball thrown by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton.
