Jeff Francoeur tricked into believing teammate is deaf by entire Minor League team in epic prank (Video)

A minor league baseball team, the El Paso Chihuahuas, spent a month executing the most elaborate prank you might have ever seen on a Major League Baseball veteran. The team managed to convince outfielder Jeff Francoeur that a teammate was deaf.

The whole team was in on it as well, the manager, the trainers, everyone. They even coordinated with a waitress at a restaurant to keep the prank going, as well as the player’s wife.

They then made a video with everyone talking about it, and generally calling him an idiot, while sharing stories. The video ends with some clips of Francoeur watching the video that reveals it was a prank in front of everyone.
