The righty was struck in the head with a ball batted by Red Sox assistant Ino Guerrero earlier this week, forcing Beckett to miss his start on Thursday. Beckett, however, was all smiles on Thursday morning, jogging out to the field to give Guerrero a crossing guard vest. Safety first appears to be Beckett's main concern going forward.
The team got a kick out of it, and Guerrero was a good sport, wearing the vest long after Beckett was gone. Check it out in the video above.
