Fan who fell at Miller Park dies

God, I hate stuff like this:

A 51-year-old man who fell about 14 feet from the lower level in left field while the Chicago
Cubs took batting practice at Miller Park last month has died, according
to a Milwaukee County medical examiner’s report released Friday.

Stuart S.
Springstube, a Weyauwega resident, was wearing Cubs gear and reaching
out over the railing down the left field line attempting to catch foul
balls April 25 when he tumbled headfirst over the rail and onto the hard
dirt below.

Enjoy the ballgame, but be careful out there, folks.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
