Lance Berkman Gives Away Adam Wainwright's Truck In April Fool's Prank

Monday April 2nd, 2012

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman/outfielder, Lance Berkman, gave away starting pitcher Adam Wainwright’s truck as an April Fools prank Sunday, according to Yahoo Sports.

In the top of the third inning, Wainwright’s white Silverado pick up was rolled onto the warning track as the public address announcer told the crowd that someone had won the truck.

"As long as that's a joke, that is well done," Wainwright said. "I don't know if that's a joke, yet."

"Hilarious," Wainwright later admitted. "Those are the kinds of things that keep baseball pretty fun—besides the fact that baseball is already pretty fun."

The two-time World Series champion, All-Star selection, and Golden Glove award winner missed the 2011 season due to injury. However, Wainwright is expected to make a huge impact this season for the Cardinals. He has pitched 66 win and 35 losses with an average of .653 and a 2.97 earned run average with 724 strike outs.
