4/25 Fan falls onto field at Miller Park

A young man fell about 14 feet from the stands onto the field in the left field corner at Miller Park during the Cubs’ batting practice on Sunday. Cubs athletic trainers Mark O’Neal and Ed Halbur rushed over to help, along with several of the players, including Sean Marshall, Tom Gorzelanny and Carlos Silva. The fan, believed to be in his 20s, was conscious when he was taken off the field in a medical cart. According to witnesses, the fan was reaching over the railing to try and catch a ball during BP and tumbled over the fence.

we were sitting in the TGI Friday’s deck about 40′-50′ from where he fell… talk about a scary moment! We watched him catch the ball and tumble down. I hope they let him keep the ball! How is he doing?? Hopefully he’ll be ok.
