Rangers to build statue for Stone

The Texas Rangers fan killed last month when he fell from the stands at Rangers Ballpark while reaching for a ball will be honored with a bronze statue at the stadium.
The Rangers announced Monday that the statue will depict
Brownwood firefighter Shannon Stone and his 6-year-old son Cooper
at a Rangers game. The statue likely will be in place for next
season outside the park's home plate gate.
Rangers CEO and President Nolan Ryan said it's a fitting tribute
to honor Stone, who fell as he reached for a foul ball tossed his
way by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton.
Stone's wife, Jenny, said her family was "touched and
grateful" and hoped the sculpture would be a reminder of "the
importance of a family's love - love of each other, love of
spending time together, and love of the game."
