Texas Rangers fans headed out to the ballpark last night to watch their Rangers. They did indeed get to see their Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins, but the night didn’t go off without a hitch. In fact, the hitch came before the game even got underway.
During the pregame extravaganza, an Army skydiver attempted to skydive into Rangers Ballpark. Instead, he ended up on a flag pole.
A U.S. Army skydiver was left dangling on a flagpole at Rangers Ballpark after his parachute got entangled during a pregame jump Tuesday night.
The Rangers said the unidentified jumper was uninjured after he unbuckled himself from the chute and dropped a few feet to a work platform on top of the scoreboard, the highest point of the stadium. The jumper could been seen walking away while his parachute whipped in the wind for several more minutes before being removed by stadium workers, who arrived quickly.
