Fallen Rangers fan laid to rest Monday | MLB.com: News

Hundreds gathered in Brownwood, Texas, on Monday for the funeral of 39-year-old Shannon Stone, who fell to his death trying to catch a baseball at a Rangers game last week, The Associated Press reported.

Stone, a local firefighter, was honored by family, friends and law enforcement personnel who stood across from the First United Methodist Church holding American flags and also carried his stone casket to a lone fire engine in front of the church.

The procession to a cemetery eight miles away was expected to include dozens more fire trucks, police cars and other emergency vehicles, the AP reported.
