The Denver coroner's office has identified the man who died after a fall at a Colorado Rockies game on Tuesday as Robert Seamans, 27, of Pueblo.

Seamans reportedly lost his balance and struck his head while sliding down a stairway railing at Coors Field -- one of his favorite places in the world.

Seamans's MySpace page features a 103-image photo gallery memorializing a Rockies game back in 2009. Included in it are shots of Seamans and buddies downing brews, clowning around and simply enjoying the festivities before and after the game. Some examples:

The Colorado Rockies issued a statement about what the team described as a "tragic accident," noting that its "thoughts and prayers are with the young man and his family and friends."

  Robert's passing is a great loss to his family, friends, and all who knew him.  He brightened people's lives during is stay here and has brightened people's lives in his passing when he donated his organs to those who needed them to be able to start living again.  He will live on in the family and the recipients' hearts, minds,  and bodies for the rest of their lives.  He will never be forgotten and he will always be remembered with the greatest appreciation.  He has given these people a new lease on life.  We are truly blessed to have people like Robert Seamans who are willing to give the gift of life to others.  I pray that his family and friends will find some comfort in knowing this.

To all you heartless bastards out there alls I can say is wow, I wonder if you would be saying this same shit if saw that poor young man just laying there bleeding all over the place as I did......... Very disturbing and very sad... This could have happened to any of us

So true!  It is easy to be heartless and without compassion if one is shallow enough to comment on something one has no firsthand knowledge of.  Yes, it was an accident.  Yes, even a needless accident.  Criticizing the actions of a young man who has passed away is ridiculous, because he would choose to make a different decision if he could.  Robert is someone's son, brother, cousin, grandson, friend... all are grieving at their unthinkable loss.  Have some respect for his family, people!

A tragic accident! May God bless his family in this time of grief, and may God bless the people he gave life to being an organ donor!
