Starting pitcher Corey Kluber got the Cleveland Indians prank treatment on Tuesday night while being interviewed live on the Fox Sports broadcast. This was pretty good and involved sunflower seeds, water, and a nice coating of powder.
Nice job of improvisation by Kluber, however, as he reached for the raincoat while Carlos Santana was attempting to stretch a single into a double.
Very surprising that Nick Swisher wasn't involved in these hi-jinx. He appeared at the plate during the video so, unless he was the ring-leader and idea man, he appears to be innocent. Justin Masterson received some similar abuse last season, so he may have been involved.
Just proves, once again, that baseball would be the best sport to be a professional.
