The MLB's Stadium Safety Plan Might Not Mean Taller Railings

The death of a Braves fan at an Atlanta ballpark over the weekend is putting more pressure on Major League Baseball to improve safety at its stadiums — safety improvements that are long overdue.
Season ticket holder Gregory Murrey fell to his death from the upper deck of Turner Field on Saturday. Witnesses say Murrey lost his footing while booing the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez. It's the second death in three years at the stadium.
"This is an old stadium, so perhaps with the new stadium, they can make the rails a bit higher," one fan told WAGA.
