Cooper Stone, the young son of deceased Rangers fan Shannon Stone, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 1 of the Division Series today.
Shannon Stone died at a Rangers game in July after he fell over a guardrail in left field. He was trying to retrieve a foul ball for his son, when he fell 20 feet onto the concrete below.
Josh Hamilton, the player who tossed Shannon Stone the ball he was going for when he fell, caught the ceremonial first pitch today before Game 1 against the Rays. He’s Cooper Stone’s favorite player. Video here:
