ATLANTA (AP) - A fan died after falling from the upper deck at Turner Field during the seventh inning as the New York Yankees beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 Saturday night.

Police said the fan was in his early 60s and fell into the lower-level seats. He was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.

The fan fell immediately after Alex Rodriguez was introduced as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning. There was no delay in the game as medical personnel treated the fan.
