A San Diego Padres ball girl was unable to catch a line drive during Tuesday night's game at Petco Park, but was probably distracted by the security guard who ran right in front of her while trying to get himself out of harm's way.
It happened in the fourth inning as St. Louis Cardinals batter Pete Kozma hit a sharp line drive foul towards the left field stands. The ball girl stood up from her stool and tried to catch the line drive, while the security guard seated next to her couldn't get out of the way fast enough as he even took his chair with him as he bailed.
That didn't look good. Not only was this security guard caught on camera running away from the first sign of trouble, but the distraction he causes nearly results in the ball girl getting nailed by a line drive. This guy needs to step up his game.
