Jeff Francoeur played Major League Baseball for 10 years before spending some time with the San Diego Padres’ Triple-A affiliate in El Paso, Texas, so he’s seen his fair share of successful team pranks. That’s what makes it even crazier that Francoeur himself fell for a minor league prank for an entire month.
Francoeur ‘s teammates on the El Paso Chihuahuas convinced the veteran that starting pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf.
Francoeur fell for the prank, and the big reveal came when the team watched the documentary “On Jeff Ears” together.
Check it out in the video below, with a hat tip to The Score.
