Fan who fell at Coors Field dies

15 Comments

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.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
