4/25 Fan incident at Miller Park – update

Ryan Theriot didn’t see the fan who fell onto the field at Miller Park during batting practice Sunday but did see dirt flying up from the ground where he hit. The fan, dressed in Cubs gear, was trying to catch a ball during batting practice and reached over the railing. He fell about 14 feet, near the left field foul pole.

“I was very shaken up,” Theriot said. “I’m looking around the stadium and thinking there has to be something to prevent that. That’s just, wow. I guess it could happen to anybody going for a ball. It was very scary.”

The fan was taken to a Milwaukee hospital.

“We’re praying for him and hopefully he’ll be fine,” Theriot said.

D’OH! Was it Homer “Cubs Fan” Simpson!?

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.
