— A man working on the scoreboard at the Mudcats' Five County Stadium fell Monday.

A witness to the fall said the man, identified as R. T. Bryant, slipped off a ladder and fell about eight to 10 feet.

Bryant was able to call 911, and was alert when emergency workers arrived. He was taken to Wake Med as a precautionary measure.

The Mudcats' owner said he was not aware Bryant would be there, and was not sure what kind of work he was doing.
