Warning: This is hard to watch.
Shannon Stone, 39, reached over an outfield railing to catch a foul ball thrown to him by Josh Hamilton last night. He caught it. Then fell 20 feet onto the surface behind the outfield fence. Witnesses say he landed head-first and was telling paramedics to "please go check on my son up there." He was later pronounced dead on his way to the hospital, after going into cardiac arrest.
This has to be tough for the now religious Hamilton. He did what any other outfielder would do, tossing the ball to a kid in the stands. Unfortunately, that kid had to watch his father fall to his death. Just awful.
