Texas Rangers fans are furious after a photo circulating on social media shows a memorial for a fallen Rangers fan covered in empty beer cans and bottles.

The photo shows trash placed on a statue at Globe Life Park in Arlington that memorializes Brownwood firefighter Shannon Stone, who died at the ballpark in 2011

Stone died after he fell from the stands trying to catch a ball for his 6-year-old son, Cooper, at a Rangers game. The franchise honored Stone and his son with the statue in April 2012.
