Jeff Francoeur having spent many years in Major League Baseball, was designated to a Triple A baseball club for a while in early to mid 2014.
While playing with the El Paso Chihuahuas, he was pranked gloriously by his teammates.
They convinced him that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf.
The prank apparently lasted for weeks and was quite elaborate, even Reyes’ wife was in on it.
There were times occasionally where Reyes would slip, but Francoeur apparently didn’t catch on.
The team’s first baseman Cody Decker captures the whole thing in a short documentary he calls “On Jeff Ears”.
Be sure to watch until the end when Francoeur realizes he’s been had.
