ATLANTA (AP) - The mother of a man who died after falling from the upper deck of Turner Field in Atlanta says her son was a life-long Braves fan.

Connie Homer of Conyers, Ga., tells The Associated Press her only son, 30-year-old Ronald Lee Homer Jr., told her in a cellphone call from the Monday night game that rain was starting to let up and he was preparing to go back in the stadium. She says he ended the call in his typical way, telling his mother he loved her.

She says her son did landscape work outside Atlanta.

Homer fell during Monday night's game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee says there's no indication of foul play, and the fall appears to have been an accident.
