Fan falls on stairwell at Rangers Ballpark

ARLINGTON -- A male adult fell on a stairwell next to the home-plate gate at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington at 9:45 p.m. CT during the Rangers' 8-4 loss to the Angels on Saturday.

The team is monitoring reports, and the fan was transported to a local hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.

Rangers fan safety became national news on July 7, when fan Shannon Stone fell to his death trying to catch a ball thrown just out of his reach in the left-field seats.

The team announced recently that Stone would be the focus of a statue built to commemorate Rangers fans at the ballpark.

The Rangers are in the process of raising the railings in front of the Ballpark's stands, although they were told that the height of their railings was within international building codes.
