See A Fan Dies After Falling Out Of Stands at Rangers Game

A man attending a Texas Rangers game with his young son died after falling out of the stands and about 20 feet to the ground while trying to catch a baseball tossed his way Thursday night, the Rangers and Arlington fire officials said.

Arlington Fire Department officials said in a statement that another fan nearby tried unsuccessfully to grab the man to keep him from falling. They said the victim's son did not fall.

"We had a very tragic accident tonight and one of our fans lost their life reaching over the rail trying to get a ball.

It is the second fatal accident at a major league stadium this season. In May, 27-year-old Robert Seamans of Pueblo, Colorado, died after falling about 20 feet and struck his head on concrete during the seventh innings of a Colorado Rockies game. Witnesses told police that the man had been trying to slide down a staircase railing at Coors Field and lost his balance.
