The San Francisco Giants and New York Mets played sixteen innings of woeful baseball last night, a game where the Giants left TWENTY NINE runners on base. In addition, they almost lost one of their security guards to decapitation.
During the top half of the sixth inning, Mets outfielder Eric Young hit a bloopy line drive down the left field line which decided to bounce around in the uniquely shaped corners of AT&T Park. Not sure what to do or where to go, the security guard charged with protecting that area decided to run into left field feeling that was probably the most safe and logical choice at the moment.
Not only did the ball bounce back towards the direction of the security guard, it came within a few feet or so where Giants outfielder Andres Torres grabbed the ball. Clearly in a rush and completely unaware that the security guard was just inches from him, Torres fired the ball back to the infield, nearly throwing the ball right into the face of the startled guard.
