Fan who fell at Coors Field dies

Ugh.  The fan who fell from a stairway at Coors Field on Tuesday has died, reports the Denver Post.  His name was Robert Seamans of Pueblo, Colorado. He was 27.

Sadly, it seems like his death was totally preventable: Seamans was attempting to slide down the railing when he lost his balance.  The picture accompanying the article in the Post shows the stairway in question. It doesn’t look like a good place for horseplay.  The only silver lining here is that Seamans was an organ donor and his organs were able to be harvested to so that others may live.

Do yourself and society a favor, folks: (a) don’t do dangerous things; and (b) become an organ donor.

Cubs to activate Craig Kimbrel on Thursday

The Cubs will activate reliever Craig Kimbrel ahead of Thursday afternoon’s game against the Braves, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Kimbrel, 31, ended a seven-month stint in free agency, agreeing to a three-year, $43 million contract with the Cubs earlier this month. He has made four minor league appearances, allowing one earned run on two hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings.

With an aggregate 3.96 ERA entering Wednesday, the Cubs’ bullpen has been among the better bullpens in the league. Adding Kimbrel, one of the greatest closers of all-time, certainly can’t hurt and will give them some stability in save situations.
