Texas Fans Join The Minor Leagues
Yesterday was opening day in Major League baseball. This is the statue that the Texas Rangers erected for Shannon Stone, who fell to his death at a Rangers game in 2011, trying to catch a ball for his 6-year-old son, Cooper. Former Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton tossed the ball toward the Stones, who were in the left-field stands, and Shannon lost his balance, landing headfirst. The Rangers honored Shannon, a firefighter of 18 years in Brownwood, Tx., with a statue unveiled in April 2012. Stay classy, Texas fans.
