Rangers express remorse for death of fan who fell at Rangers Ballpark | MLB.com: News

ARLINGTON — The day after what club president Nolan Ryan called “one of the saddest things” he has experienced at a ballpark, the Rangers set up a memorial fund for the family of Brownwood fireman Shannon Stone.

Stone died on Thursday night as the result of injuries sustained in a 20-foot fall from the left-field seats into an area behind the out-of-town scoreboard during a game against the A’s at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Flags flew at half-staff on Friday at the Ballpark and both teams were planning to wear a black ribbon on their uniforms for the game. A moment of silence will also be observed and information on the memorial fund will be made through the Texas Rangers Foundation.

Contributions can be made to the Memorial Account in Honor of Shannon Stone.
