Pirates Minor Leaguer Uses Newspaper Misprint to Pull Prank on Mother (Photos)

Pittsburgh Pirates farmhand Tony Sanchez may not rank in most top 10 franchise prospects lists, but, if the subject is humor, he’s got can’t-miss potential.

On Sunday, Major League Baseball announced a six-game suspension to Pirates starter Jonathan Sanchez for throwing at the Cardinals’ Allen Craig. However, when the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s story on the suspension ran in Monday’s paper, there was a little problem. Instead of a picture of Jonathan Sanchez, a picture of Tony Sanchez appeared with the article.

The latter tweeted a picture of the mistake.

However, Tony decided to take things a bit further. Using the misprint to his advantage, the younger Sanchez decided to pull a prank on his mother, then posted a screenshot of the conversation on Twitter.

That may be kind of mean, but it’s also pretty hilarious. However, when the opportunity presents itself, you have to take advantage.
