Alex Rodriguez killed a man

Controversial New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez killed a man at Turner Field in Atlanta last night as the Yanks took on the Braves.

The fall occurred in the top of the seventh inning as the A-Rod was walking to the plate to a chorus of boos. The 60 some year old Gregory Murrey apparently fell off the upper deck in the 400 level of the stadium behind the home-plate area and landed on concrete 40 feet below between the second and third row of seats on the first level in section 202.

The man eventually was carried out. But there were at least two pools of blood on the concrete where he was lying. Three rows of seats were emptied and a stadium worker with a mop arrived soon after to mop up the blood.

Earlier, Sgt. Greg Lyon with Atlanta police said, “Yes. A fan has fallen and his condition is grave. We are investigating the circumstances of the fall, and I will keep you posted as I learn more.”

Marty Burns of Vernon, Ala., was seated in section 401 near the man who fell.

“When they called A-Rod coming to bat, he got all excited, and his momentum took him over (the railing)," he said

A fan wearing a Yankees jersey in Section 401 told that the fan was screaming at A-Rod before losing his balance and falling over the railing.

"Right now preliminary investigation reveals there is no type of foul play but we need to wait until the medical examiner rules on the cause of death," said Atlanta police lieutenant Charles Hampton, the department's homicide commander. "We’re asking anybody who’s in the area to come forward and let us know what they saw. But we don’t believe it was anything suspicious."

Steroids is bad.
