ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A man reaching for a foul ball fell from the second deck into the field level seats at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on Tuesday night.
The incident happened during the fifth inning of a game between the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers. Rangers executive vice president/communications John Blake said the man was "able to move all his extremities and was responsive to paramedics."
The man fell about 30 feet after Texas right fielder Nelson Cruz fouled a ball into the first row of seats in the club level along the first-base line. Paramedics attended to the man before he was taken by ambulance to a Fort Worth hospital.
The game was stopped for 16 minutes and several players on the field looked shaken. Four people in the lower deck were struck when the spectator fell and were treated at the ballpark for minor injuries.
