NJN/am for Tuesday, August 13


Sports: Death at Turner Field. A man fell from a platform Monday at the Braves game, plunging 60 feet to his death in a parking lot below. Authorities haven’t released any more information about the incident, other than to say it is apparently accidental and that the investigation is continuing. It happened during a long rain delay before the start of the Braves-Phillies game, which Philadelphia won 5-1 on the strength of a Cody Asche three-run homer. It was Phillies manager Charlie Manuel’s 1,000th win as a skipper. Elsewhere in baseball, the Barons fell in Mobile 8-2 to the BayBears, who won four games in the five-game series. Mobile scored seven of its runs in the first two innings. The Barons move on to a series at Jacksonville… College football: ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” is reporting that Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel took part in two more autograph-signing sessions, bringing the total to six in three states. The two newly-reported sessions took place just after the BCS Championship Game in Florida, and then another session in Houston shortly afterward. Again, there’s no proof yet that the Texas A&M quarterback received anything for these signings.
