The Texas Rangers fan killed last month when he fell from the stands at Rangers Ballpark while reaching for a ball will be remembered with a bronze statue at the Arlington stadium.
The Rangers announced Monday the statue will depict Brownwood firefighter Shannon Stone and his 6-year-old son Cooper at a Rangers game. The statue likely will be in place for next season outside the park’s home plate gate.
Rangers CEO and President Nolan Ryan said it’s a fitting tribute to honor Stone and recognize Rangers fans and baseball fans.
Stone’s wife, Jenny, said her family was “touched and grateful” and hoped the sculpture would be a reminder of “the importance of a family’s love – love of each other, love of spending time together, and love of the game.”
