MLB Rangers Suing Former Owner Tom Hicks For More Than $35M

REMEMBERING A FALLEN FAN: The Rangers yesterday announced plans for a future statue outside Rangers Ballpark that will honor Shannon Stone, the fan who died from injuries suffered in a ballpark fall July 7. The full-size bronze statue, tentatively named Rangers Fans, should be in place for the '12 season. It will depict Stone and his six-year-old son, Cooper, attending a Rangers game and will likely be located outside the home plate gate. The Rangers will fund the project and are in the early stages of considering sculptors to design and create the statue (Rangers).
