Baseball team pretends player is deaf

A group of professional baseball players pretended one of their teammates was deaf for an entire month--in order to play a prank on a player. The Chihuahuas is a minor league team of the San Diego Padres out of El Paso, Texas that had outfielder Jeff Francoeur believing that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf. Not only were the players on the team part of the prank, so was the coaching and training staffs. They even got Francoeur to talk about it on camera. You can see it below--though the video creator ironically choice not to include captioning.
