Cleveland Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez received a surprise when he arrived Thursday morning in Goodyear, Ariz.
His teammates decided to prank the 22-year-old by parking his car at his position on the field. The reason?
Francona said Ramirez has reputation for parking wherever he wants in lot. Teammates got him back w/ today's car-parked-at-shortstop prank.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) March 26, 2015
You know it's spring training when teams are pulling off high jinx like this. You'd think if anyone might be upset it would be the groundskeepers, but even they took it in stride.
