Hundreds mourn Rangers fan who fell to his death
Firefighters from across region among hundreds to mourn Rangers fan who fell to his death
By The Associated Press

BROWNWOOD, Texas (AP) ' Relatives, friends and fellow firefighters are among the hundreds of mourners at a public visitation for the 39-year-old Texas Rangers fan who fell to his death trying to catch a ball thrown by his son's favorite player.

Shannon Stone died Thursday after dropping head-first about 20 feet from the seats at Rangers Ballpark. Josh Hamilton tossed a ball his way and Stone wanted to grab it for his 6-year-old son, Cooper.

Stone spent the last 18 years as a firefighter in Brownwood, a town of about 20,000 residents some 150 miles from the Rangers' stadium in Arlington.



The public visitation was Sunday night and a funeral service is scheduled for Monday. The tributes already have begun, from flags in the area at half-staff and flowers left at a monument outside the fire department.
