Home run ball ricochets back over wall, hits Albert Almora Jr. in head (vid)

A home run off the bat of Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Max Muncy ricocheted off something beyond the center-field wall back toward the field … and bounced right off Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr.’s head.

The silly sequence of events played out during the first inning of the Dodgers’ 7-5 victory over the Cubs at Dodger Stadium.

Heads up, indeed.

It’s bad enough to watch an opponent’s batted ball go over the fence. Having said ball carom back into the field of play and plunk you in the head is just adding insult to injury. Gee whiz.
