Firefighter recovering after Rangers Ballpark fall

A firefighter is still hospitalized but in good spirits after taking a 30-foot plunge while leaning to catch a foul ball at a Texas Rangers game.
Tyler Morris (pictured below), who works at the Lake Cities Fire Department near Dallas, was attending Tuesday night’s game with friends.
Kevin Conner says Morris suffered a head injury and sprained ankle but no internal injuries, and he was joking with friends and family Wednesday. Conner says Morris is expected to be released soon from a Fort Worth hospital.
Conner says his 25-year-old friend grabbed the railing briefly as he tumbled from the second deck at the Rangers Ballpark and didn’t fall on his head.
Nolan Ryan, the Hall of Fame pitcher and Rangers’ president, took the foul ball to Morris in the hospital Wednesday.

    If you are not on the field making one hundred thousand a year or more then you should make no play for the ball.

    Instead of raising the rails maybe they should install seatbelts on the upper deck seats and make the fans buckle up.

    I like the seatbelt idea.

  5. CD says:

    But if they require us to wear seatbelts, how are we gonna do the wave?
    I live for doing the wave!
