The Texas Rangers say a fan died after falling out of the stands while trying to catch a baseball tossed his way during the game. Rangers president Nolan Ryan said after Thursday night’s game that the team was “deeply saddened” to learn that the man “has passed away as a result of this tragic accident.”
The accident happened in the second inning after Oakland’s Conor Jackson hit a foul ball that ricocheted into left field. Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton retrieved the ball and tossed it into the stands.
Replays on Oakland’s television broadcast show the man reaching for the ball and apparently catching it before tumbling.
