A Tragic Accident - Or An Accident Waiting To Happen?

CREATED Jul 8, 2011

                               

 

Last evening, Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton tossed a foul ball into the stands.  While going for the ball, a spectator lost his balance and fell 20 feet to his death. The man's eight-year old son was standing next to him as he went over the railing.

Here's a link to the video.  Please be aware that it is extremely disturbing.

I'm told that Major League Baseball discourages players from throwing balls into the stands under circumstances like this - but I see balls thrown into the stands at the end of almost every inning.

So, was this simply a tragic accident - or an accident waiting to happen?

We'll discuss this incident on my radio show at noon today.
