Dodgers Prospect Hits Home Run Off Outfielder's Head

Yes really, Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Alex Verdugo really hit a home run off the top of the Right Fielder's head Tuesday night.

And if you watch closely---it tops the home run that years ago bounced off the top of Jose Canseco's head.

Vertugo, leadoff hitter for the AAA Oklahoma City RedHawks came up to bat in the bottom of the 8th inning in a game against the Reno Aces with two runners on and his team trailing 8-3.

He took a mighty cut at a fat pitch over the middle of the plate sending the ball towards right field but seemingly well short of the 385 foot fence in right center.

What seemingly would have been the first out of the inning---took a turn for the crazy when Reno RF Zach Borenstein over-ran the ball and then twisted around trying to catch it.

Borenstein missed it...completely, the ball ricocheting off his head and into the Right Field Bullpen. What should have been an out became a 3-run home run closing the Aces lead to 8-7. Reno would hold on, winning the game 9-7.
