Fan's death at Braves game raises stadium safety questions

ATLANTA (AP) The death of a longtime Braves season-ticket holder raises questions about the planned height of guard rails at their new stadium scheduled to open in 2017.

The Braves say they had safety in mind when making plans for SunTrust Park even before Gregory K. Murrey's death on Saturday night, though team officials on Monday would not release plans for the heights of the railings at the new stadium.

The stadium rails at Turner Field meet industry standard height requirements, but the team could exceed those heights at their new facility.
