In what I can only describe as the most eye opening example of the state of this country’s economy, a fan at the Rangers/Indians game last night took a 30 foot leap off the upper deck in an attempt to catch something he could of bought at a local Dick’s Sporting Goods for the price of two ballpark beers.

The man is said to be in stable condition and a few fans that happened to purchase tickets in his landing zone suffered minor injuries. The surprising thing isn’t that this happened, but that this doesn’t happen more often. There’s 4800 odd games played each MLB season and each has countless foul balls and sometimes even bats that fly at fans who are often too busy playing with their iPhones to recognize the impending doom hurtling towards their faces. Mix that with a bunch of drunks and people who think that catching a beat up old piece of rawhide and string is tantamount to winning the lottery, and it’s shocking that our nation’s ballparks aren’t teeming with handicap inducing accidents and even death.
