Ballpark safety: No tossing balls above field level

July 16, 2011

I cannot get my mind off the tragic death of the man who fell from the second deck of the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas after trying to catch a ball tossed to him by outfielderJosh Hamilton.

Wouldn't it be a good idea for the commissioner of Major League Baseball to make a public announcement that "gift baseballs" are to be thrown no higher than the first deck of baseball stadiums?
