VIDEO: Yankee teammates poke fun at Eduardo Nunez with chalk outline

  • David Whitlock

It’s all fun and games as long as no one gets hurt.  That appears to be the case, as New York Yankees IF Eduardo Nunez took an awkward tumble at Toronto’s Rogers Centre on Wednesday night, and was greeted with a chalk outline (a la a crime scene) during batting practice.

RHP Joba Chamberlain and OF Vernon Wells were the two wise guys.  It wasn’t quite as funny when Nunez was scratched on Thursday, but the injury does not appear to be serious.  The Rogers Centre remains the only MLB ballpark with artificial turf.

This is straight out of the Yankees clubhouse prank playbook, as they pulled the same gag on Mariano Rivera after his devastating 2012 season-ending knee injury during BP at Kaufman Stadium.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
