A spectator fell to his death Tuesday night at Wrigley Field during the Reds game versus the Cubs.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Richard E. Garrity, 42, of Wheaton, Ill. -- a Chicago suburb -- died after falling over a railing and hitting his head as he left the stadium.

Garrity was a "lifelong Cubs fan" who attended the game as a work outing, the Tribune reported.
