Family, Police Looking Into Braves Fan Death

Another tragedy in Major League Baseball Monday evening as a 30-year-old life long Braves fan fell to his death at Turner Field.

Ronald Homer fell at least 65-feet from an upper deck wall into a player’s parking lot outside the stadium just after 9:00 PM during a rain delay. The family not only says they will consult a lawyer, but that the railings in which Homer fell were too low for a man of Homer’s size (he stood 6-foot-6). They don’t suspect alcohol as a factor.

USA Today released this report last night in which they spoke with Atlanta police in regards to the death of Homer.

2011 had two fan deaths which included one tragic fall at Coors Field and another in Arlington.
