ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - A male fan fell on a stairwell near the home plate gate while leaving Rangers Ballpark.

After Texas’ 8-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night, the team said in a statement that it was monitoring reports of the man’s condition. The adult fan got immediate attention at the stadium before being taken to a hospital, the team said.

Rangers spokesman John Blake said the team had no other information.

At Rangers Ballpark on July 7, Brownwood firefighter Shannon Stone died after tumbling over a railing and falling about 20 feet to concrete behind the left-field wall after reaching out to catch a baseball tossed his way.
