Veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur was unable to win a job with the Indians in spring training, and, soon after being released, he signed a minor league contract with the Padres. They assigned him to their Triple-A affiliate in El Paso.

Francoeur's teammates, several of whom he's known since his time with the Braves, decided to pull off an elaborate prank that included the coaching staff, the training staff, and sometimes innocent bystanders. They convinced Jeff that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf and kept the gag running for weeks. Here is the result (make sure you stick around for Francoeur's reaction at the end):
