Tragedy in Texas

by Greg Pollowitz

A 39-year-old father died yesterday, in front of his young son, after falling over a railing at the Texas Rangers’ stadium in an attempt to catch a ball flipped into the stands by outfielder Josh Hamilton.

And I don’t know a father who wouldn’t have tried to grab that ball for his kid. Truly heartbreaking, moreso for anyone who has cherished memories of spending a day at the ballpark as a youngster with their father.
