Jeff Francoeur Was Tricked into Thinking Minor League Teammate Was Deaf for a Full Month

After spending 10 years in the big leagues, Jeff Francoeur finds himself playing for San Diego’s Triple A affiliate in El Paso. Instead of rolling out the red carpet to welcome the free-swinging outfielder, the Chihuahuas decided to play a month-long prank on him.

It took a total team effort to convince Francoeur starting pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf. The payoff for this massive conspiracy is a seven-minute video roasting him for his stupidity.

Worth it? Probably.

Francoeur’s reaction to his teammates’ trickery is quite tame compared to the fit of rage it would have sent others into.
