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.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
