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."
