Watch a Marlins Minor Leaguer hit a homer that deflected off not one, but two outfielders

Recently, one of the more amusing moments in MLB history reached its 24th anniversary -- the time Jose Canseco's head assisted a homer over the wall in right field. It was a random moment made possible by some highly unusual circumstances, for sure.
This weekend, two separate Minor League games featured homers highlighted by some strange happenings that came close to acting as sequels to Canseco's original chapter. After Friday's glove-aided walk-off from the Albuquerque Isotopes' Dustin Garneau, Alex Jones of the Greensboro Grasshoppers (the Marlins' Class A affiliate) hit a rocket to left-center on Sunday that scaled the wall ...but only after ricocheting off two Kannapolis Intimidators in their pursuit of the ball. 
Seriously, it was wild: 

Two unusual (and unusually similar) Minor League homers in the span of a few days. That's baseball, always finding ways to keep us on our toes with the unpredictable.
