Twins Play Hilarious March Madness Prank On Pitcher Mike Pelfrey

The Minnesota Twins recently pulled a hilarious prank on their own pitcher Mike Pelfrey, making him believe that he was giving an inspirational speech over the phone to the basketball team of his alma mater, Wichita State (before the loss to Kentucky). But as Pelfrey would later find out, he was actually talking to some of his teammates in the clubhouse. Even Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was in on it.
