Fan falls about 14 feet during Cubs BP

A spectator fell about 14 feet from the lower level in left field while the Cubs took batting practice about an hour before their game with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The man believed to be in his 20s was reaching out over the railing down the left field line attempting to catch foul balls on Sunday when he tumbled headfirst over the rail and onto the hard dirt below.

Brewers head athletic trainer Roger Caplinger said the man was cut and bleeding from the face, but was conscious as he was taken off the field by emergency first responders. There were no immediate details on other injuries.

Several Cubs players went over to see what had happened, and the incident held up batting practice for about 10 minutes.
