Selig: Teams reviewing stadium safety after death

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says major league teams are reviewing stadium safety following the death of a fan at a Texas Rangers game last week.

The fan, 39-year-old Shannon Stone, fell over a railing while trying to catch a ball thrown to the stands by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton.

Selig made the comment during a question-and-answer session with the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Selig also said he had found more support for a one-game playoff between wild-card teams if the playoffs expand from eight to 10 clubs in 2012.

He also said the 2013 All-Star game is likely to be at the Mets' Citi Field.

And for six young baseball fans, Tuesday's All-Star game will be particularly thrilling.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has sponsored a trip for them and their families to enjoy the festivities surrounding the game.

Among the young people who had a wish granted is Erick Cruz, a talented ball player from Claremont, Calif., who has been fighting leukemia for the last few years but is now in remission. He says he's starting to work out again and trying to get in shape.
