Rangers raise railing at the Ballpark

The Texas Rangers have taken the first steps toward making their ballpark safer following the death of a fan during a recent game.
The club announced Tuesday plans to raise the height of all
rails in front of the seating areas "to the highest standard in
the United States at this time." It was not immediately clear how
high that would be, or how soon it would be done. A news conference
at the stadium was planned for later in the afternoon.
On July 8, Shannon Stone fell headfirst 20 feet onto concrete
trying to catch a ball tossed by a player, and died within an hour.
Another fan fell over a railing last year but was not seriously
The Rangers' next home game is Friday night.
