In July, Texas Rangers fan Shannon Stone died from injuries sustained during a fall from the bleachers at Arlington Stadium. He was reaching for a ball Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton flipped to his son, Cooper, who was by his side when he fell. Today, Cooper was on hand to throw out the first pitch prior to the team's playoff game against Tampa and it's not an exaggeration to say the moment was on par with any of the iconic baseball moments from the past three days.
