Newspaper uses Tony Sanchez’s picture for Jonathan Sanchez suspension, leads to hilarious prank on mother

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jonathan Sanchez was given a six-game suspension on Saturday for throwing at St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Allen Craig. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette ran a story about the incident, but they got the wrong Sanchez. Instead of featuring a picture of the MLB pitcher, the newspaper included a photo of Pirates catching prospect Tony Sanchez. The falsely accused Sanchez shared the article with his Twitter followers.

Rather than taking offense to the mistake, Tony decided to take advantage and use it to make his poor mother panic. Check out this hilarious screenshot of a conversation he had with her about the article.

Considering this is the same Tony Sanchez who reportedly broke his jaw in a bar fight last year and was told by the organization to get off Twitter, it probably wasn’t hard for his mother to imagine that he had gotten himself into trouble. ┬áIn any event, the joke was perfectly executed.
