Father dies from trying to catch a foul ball at Rangers game

Rangers fan plummets after trying to catch a foul ball for his 4-year-old son. He dies one hour later from cardiac arrest.

Ironically, the victim was totally coherent following the accident. After his fall, the first words that came out of his mouth were, "Please check on my son. My son was up there by himself."

According to, "The accident in Texas occurred in the second inning after Oakland's Conor Jackson hit a foul ball that ricocheted into left field. Josh Hamilton, the reigning AL MVP, retrieved the ball and tossed it into the stands."

Nolan Ryan, President of the team, says that the whole team is distraught, especially Josh, who threw the ball that essentially led to the victim's tragic death.
