A 2-year-old boy fell a dozen feet during a game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

The boy was crawling up the bleachers on Saturday night and fell 15 feet through a small gap, according to fire officials.

Fire and rescue spokesman Joel Granata said the boy was crying and alert after the fall. He was immediately taken to the hospital.

He is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
