Texas man falls to death at Rangers game..
      #1649601 - 07/08/11 07:23 AM (71.62.10.160)

I should say another man falls at Rangers game..going after a foul ball...ok..a ball that was hit foul bounced back onto the field and tossed to the fans by All Star Josh Hamilton..as his son watched...
The man was conscious leaving the game and asked rescue personnel to check on his son....

Going after the ball.....

Extremely tragic and very, very hard to reconcile. I feel bad for everyone involved including Josh Hamilton. It's so hard to understand why something so innocuous and routine could turn out this way.

Not hard to understand at all. There's insufficient safety equipment to guard against this kind of accident. Would it kill 'em to string a net out for about 5 feet? Yeah, it'd cost something, but would it detract from the experience in any way? I don't think so, and some thinking artsy person could probably make it look decorative.

as soon as you string that net guys will be on it trying to snag fly balls higher railing might be nice but it blocks sight lines

It could be desinged so they'd be trapped about 10 feet lower than the decking, and have to be rescued. Then that's when you arrest 'em...

Both could be accomplished if we decided we wanted them.

People already know that purposefully going over the rails for any reason is against the rules. That doesn't stop them now; it won't stop them with a net, a trap, or a loose gorilla in the dugout.

In somewhat related news, anyone hear about Barry Bremen dying?

'Cuz letting people die when you can prevent it is wasteful, not to mention evil.
