Rockies CF Dexter Fowler uses his head, literally, to break up double play (Video)

Colorado Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler used his head, literally, to break up a double play after a throw by San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford deflected off Fowler's helmet during Tuesday night's MLB game at AT&T Park.

It happened in the top of the sixth inning with Fowler on first base. Rockies batter Charlie Blackmon grounded to second baseman Marco Scutaro, who tossed the ball to Crawford for the force out of Fowler. Fowler slid a bit high into second base, which obviously affected Crawford's throw, as the ball bounced high off Fowler's helmet and all the way back behind home plate.

It's a good thing Fowler was wearing that helmet.
