Rangers president says widow of fan who died at game worried about 6-year-old son
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) ' Texas Rangers president Nolan Ryan says grief counseling has been made available to players following the death of a fan who plunged over an outfield railing trying to catch a baseball.
Ryan spoke Friday, the day after 39-year-old firefighter Shannon Stone fell during Thursday night's game in Arlington, Texas, as he reached for a foul ball tossed to him by outfielder Josh Hamilton.
Stone was at the game with his 6-year-old son, Cooper.
Ryan says he spoke with the firefighter's widow by telephone. He says Jenny Stone told him that "she's very concerned about her son and the impact that this is having on him."
