Outfield walls want no part of Alex Gordon

Alex Gordon is so intimidating in the outfield walls bow to him.
OK, not really. But the Gold Glover's hustle in left field Wednesday afternoon against the Padres was still pretty awesome -- mainly because he didn't get hurt.
On the first pitch of the second inning, San Diego's Seth Smith hit a pop towards the left-field wall. Gordon tracked and pursued, but the ball wound up in the seats. The wall, however, didn't escape the wrath of Gordon's efforts.
Oddly enough, that wasn't even the weirdest thing to happen in the series finale between the Royals and Padres.
The first pitch was literally prehistoric.
