Rangers unveil statue of fan who died at ballpark


The above video shows Rangers fan and firefighter Shannon Stone falling to his death while trying to catch a baseball for his son last year. On Thursday, the team honored the father and son by unveiling the following statue.

The photos of the Shannon Stone statue make me teary eyed. Very touching. #Rangers #MLB

@Flyguyify I understand that it symbolizes Rangers fans in general, but still. That's Shannon Stone.
