Last night, at a Braves-Yankees baseball game in the Braves home field, a 60 year old fan fell to his death. The fan, Gregory ‘Ace’ Murrey, was a season ticket holder with the same seats for 23 years. The man was a diehard fan of baseball and so his family states that at least he died in his favorite place, during his favorite activity.

The police have started investigating his death but they do not suspect any foul play. Murrey tumbled out of the stands during the 7th inning of the game; he tumbled head over feet and hit some of the lines attached to the backstop before hitting a concrete walkway in front of a row of fans. The autopsy has yet to declare the cause of death.
