Security!: Camden Yards guard collides with Royals’ Mike Moustakas

I don't know whether to criticize or commend the Camden Yards security guard who collided with Royals' third baseman Mike Moustakas as he chased Robert Andino's foul ball on Friday night.

On one hard, you could say he did a really lousy job vacating his territory as the baseball, Moustakas, shortstop Alcides Escobar and left fielder Alex Gordon all converged on him (at least he grabbed the chair and tucked it somewhat safely away).

On the other hand, maybe the guard witnessed Moustakas crashing into the expensive seats at Yankee Stadium earlier this week while chasing a similar foul ball, and figured his duty was to run interference to protect those seated behind him.

It could go either way.

But in all seriousness, we're happy to report all parties involved in the collision were unharmed and remained in the game. Though unfortunately for the Royals, it proved to be a bad omen, as Jason Hammel and the Orioles pitched and slugged their way to an easy 8-2 victory.
