Sports log: Fan dies from fall at Turner Field


A man who fell more than 60 feet from an upper-level platform at Turner Field onto a parking lot during the Phillies-Braves game Monday night died, Atlanta Police said. Police spokesman John Chafee confirmed the death of the man, whose name was not released. ‘‘There’s no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental,’’ Chafee said. Witnesses described the fall, on the stadium’s back side, as accidental. Chafee said he did not know if wet conditions or alcohol were factors; heavy rains had led to a nearly two-hour delay of the game. The man was transported to Atlanta Medical Center and died of his injuries . . . During an interview with WFAN radio in New York Monday, Angels star Mike Trout said he is frustrated by players who take performance-enhancing drugs and he would stiffen the penalty for violators to a lifetime ban. “To me, personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught,” Trout said. “It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural.” . . . Little League Baseball plans to introduce an educational program for coaches and volunteers intended to raise awareness about the use and dangers of PEDs among young players.
