MILWAUKEE -- Authorities say a baseball spectator has died nearly three weeks after he fell at Miller Park before a Milwaukee Brewers game.

Stuart Springstube of Weyauwega was reaching over a railing for foul balls while the Chicago Cubs took batting practice on April 25.

The 51-one-year-old Springstube fell over the railing to the hard dirt below. A medical examiner's report released Friday says Springstube suffered a brain hemorrhage after a fall of between 10 and 15 feet. He died Wednesday.

A Brewers spokesman said Springstube was moving his extremities after the fall. A trainer said Springstube was cut and bleeding from the face but conscious as he was taken off the field.
