A tragic and fatal accident took place at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas last night.

After a foul ball ricocheted from the stands back onto the field, Rangers left fielder Josh Hamilton flipped the ball back up toward the crowd along the left field wall.

A fan lost his footing as he reached for the ball and fell about 20 feet to the concrete below.

The man received immediate medical attention and was transported to a nearby hospital.

However, according to a statement from the Rangers, he died from the injuries he suffered in the fall.
