In memory of Shannon Stone

By now you've probably heard of the tragic incident which occurred Thursday night at the Athletics-Rangers baseball game in Arlington, TX. A 39-year old man named Shannon Stone died shortly after falling twenty feet from his left field seats when attempting to catch a ball thrown into the stands by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton. The most heart-wrenching aspect was Stone's 6-year old son Cooper accompanied him to the game and thus witnessed this awful tragedy.

The Texas Rangers have set up a memorial fund in honor of Shannon Stone, which will benefit his family. You can follow this link to make your donation.
