Lance Berkman Gives Away Teammates Truck In April Fools Prank
St. Louis Cardinals Lance Berkman pulled off the best April Fool’s prank yesterday, when just prior to the third inning he drove a 2009 white Chevrolet Silverado onto the warning track at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla. The public address announcer declared that it would be given away to a lucky fan.
However the truck wasn’t Berkmans or the Cardinals to give away it in fact belonged to teammate Adam Wainwright, who was in the dugout at the time.
Wainwright watched as the supposed prize winners, a father and son and cousin to World Series MVP David Freese, climbed into the pickup bed and Berkman drove them toward the home dugout. Wainwright did a double-take as the truck drove around the field and was in shock when he realized the truck belonged to him.
“Hilarious,” Wainwright said of the practical joke. “Those are the kinds of things that keep baseball pretty fun.”
