Fan Who Fell From Upper Deck In 'Good Spirits'

Tyler Morris, the fan who took a frightening tumble out of the upper deck at the Ballpark in Arlington on Tuesday night, is in ‘good spirits’ as of Wednesday afternoon. Morris thankfully wasn’t more critically injured, but he did suffer a fractured skull and a broken ankle.

Rangers team president Nolan Ryan shared a few thoughts on the horrific incident:

“I think anytime somebody falls that distance, my expectations were worse than what we saw today,” Ryan said. “We were very fortunate. My thought was we had some serious injuries on our hands.”

“When the Ballpark was built, (the railings) were built above (specifications) so we feel good about that,” Ryan said. “We feel this was strictly an accident. It’s unfortunate that it happened but it’s difficult to guard against.”
