Rangers-Indians Game Halted After Fan Falls From Second Deck

The Rangers were leading the Indians 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth inning Tuesday night when the game was suddenly halted after a fan fell 30 feet from the second deck at Rangers Ballpark.

Texas' Nelson Cruz fouled a ball into the first row of seats in the club level along the first-base line, and the fan attempted to snag the ball before losing his balance and tumbling about 30 feet onto the seats below.

Paramedics were on the scene quickly to attend to the fan, who was strapped to a stretcher and taken by ambulance to a hospital.

The game was halted for 16 minutes but has since resumed.  Check SBNation Dallas for any updates on the fan's condition and the game itself.
