Good call on the helmet: A’s security guard takes ball off the noggin (video)

During the Oakland A’s-New York Yankees tilt at Coliseum on Wednesday, a crazy carom caused a baseball hit into foul territory to deflect off the padding along the seats straight into the side of the head of a security guard.

It’s a good thing that before he took to the field to man his station, this guy decided that strapping on a helmet, while it may appear foolish to some (which it is not), was a wise course of action.

Seriously, that’s the best helmet performance I have witnessed since I saw Helmet shred on “Unsung” during a concert in the early ’90s. Hey-ohhh!

Yeah, I’m old.
