  • Pranks!

    What is the best baseball prank you know about?

    One of my favorites is from Spring Training a couple years ago. Two Cub pitchers were in the midst of a prank war. So one (Sorry I don't remember their names) takes the tires off of the other guy's truck and hides them around the stadium (In the bathroom, another in the bullpen)

    Another good one...Tim Hudson scares Eddie Perez

    Didn't think so. I'll see you again tomorrow night around the top of the ninth."

    I can't remember who did it, but it was Will Ohman's car.

    Hudson scared the crap out of Perez though. The look on his face is priceless. I'm glad he doesn't have a weak heart!

          A long time ago a minor leaguer said his goodbyes to his teammates and packed his suitcase. He planned on taking the next train to go and play for a different club.

          When he returned to get his suitcase, he found he couldn't even lift it off of the floor. His teammates had tossed his clothes out of the suitcase and then filled it full of coal. By the time he cleaned out the suitcase he had missed his train.

            Sparky Lyle used to sit bare-assed on birthday cakes.

            I remember a few years ago on ESPN radio Harold Reynolds telling a story where he was talking to Cal Ripken about riding a bike to the stadium everyday. Ripken said that it was a great idea and encouraged him to do it. A few days later, Reynolds rode his bike into work. Sure enough, he went out at the end of the day and the tires were gone. On top of that, Baltimore had there own "Kangaroo Court" which fined Reyolds something like $100, which was a rather large sum. I forget the exact charges, but it pretty much boiled down to being dumb enough to ride a bike to work. The "judge" who issued the fine? Cal Ripken.

              The only thing that would have made that one better would be if they waited to tell him when he went to the airport the next morning...Here's some footage from the Today Show the next day

                One that wasn't funny was Randy Myers spraying bleach at reporters and throwing fire crackers at a mom and her children.

                  I thought that was Vince Coleman with the fire crackers. Those Mets teams threw a lot of money at players who simply didn't care to be there or anywhere, for that matter.

                  Carl Yastrzemski was quite the prankster. He loved messing with people's clothing. The ever dapper Luis Aparicio was a favorite target.

                  Jay Johnstone talks about pranks quite a bit in his books. He talked about how Jerry Reuss, after hearing trade rumors, showed up in the Yankee manager's office telling him he was the newest Yankee pitcher and set things off in a tizzy. Reuss was also the "strongman" in the three man lift, where he would say he could lift three men on the floor as they were lined up, which was actually just a setup for the guy in the miiddle to get doused with all kinds of stuff. Our own Hiddengem has even talked about that prank, it's pretty widespread, I guess.

                  Johnstone also mentioned how he freaked out the Dodgertown nurse by trying to pass off apple juice as his urine specimen then drinking it down in front of her.

                    That it was. I think it was at Dodgers Stadium where fans were waiting for autographs.

                      Coleman had firecrackers, Saberhagen had bleach.

                      Such a proud time for the franchise.
