Selig: Teams reviewing stadium safety after death
Tuesday, July 12, 2011
PHOENIX (AP) -- Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says major league teams are reviewing stadium safety following the death of a fan at a Texas Rangers game last week.
The fan, 39-year-old Shannon Stone, fell over a railing while trying to catch a ball thrown to the stands by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton.
Selig made the comment during a question-and-answer session with the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
Selig also said he had found more support for a one-game playoff between wild-card teams if the playoffs expand from eight to 10 clubs in 2012.
He also said the 2013 All-Star game is likely to be at the Mets' Citi Field.
