Juan Uribe was tagged out in the fourth inning of Saturday’s Los Angeles Dodgers-Tampa Bay Rays game after falling for the hidden ball trick, so his teammates decided to have some fun with him after the game. They took one of his cleats, taped it to a base, and left it for him at his locker after the game.
Uribe looked bewildered after seeing the surprise present left at his locker. This was shared by Hanley Ramirez on Instagram:
“Uribe keep ur foot on the base!! #gotheeemm” Ramirez wrote on Instagram.
Hanley’s been out with a shoulder injury and has some free time on his hands during games, so I’m guessing he was behind the present. It was definitely a solid prank, and it’s a lot easier to do that sort of thing when you’re leading your division.Google+
