Shannon Stone's Public Visitation Drew 'Hundreds' Of Mourners

Sunday night, family and associates of Shannon Stone attended a Brownwood, Texas public visitation in honor of the deceased Texas Rangers fan. Stone's funeral service is scheduled for Monday, according to the Associated Press.

Stone passed away Thursday night after falling from the outfield stands at Rangers Park while trying to catch a ball tossed by Josh Hamilton. He appeared to land on his upper body in the confined space, telling medical personnel to take care of his son as he was removed from the stadium on a stretcher. Players and fans on both sides, and all throughout sports, have been shaken by the story.

The Rangers have set up a fund in Stone's memory, pinned black ribbons on player jerseys, lowered flags to half-mast and held a moment of silence.
