Heads Up Home Run

posted by Matt McCoy - 

Somewhere Jose Canseco is smiling. It was 24 years ago that the Indians Carlos Martinez famously hit a home run that cleared the fence only because the ball bounced off the head of Canseco who tried to make a catch in right field for the Texas Rangers. It's on baseball's blooper-reel Hall of Fame. Canseco, however now has some company. Zach Borenstein, the right fielder for the Reno Aces, triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, pulled a Canseco Tuesday night. He was trying to play a deep fly ball off the bat of Oklahoma City outfielder Alex Verdugo, but the ball glanced off his glove--then off his head, and sailed over the fence. The plays are similar, but I have to give it up to Borenstein. The carom off  his head was even more significant, from a distance standpoint, than Canseco's. I hope he had an ice pack for his noggin. Check out the video of the "Borenstein bonk" and the infamous Canseco play.
