It’s common knowledge that pranks go down regularly in MLB clubhouses. Some people get hit harder than others.Yankees rookie Andrew Brackman has been getting hit pretty hard since he entered the Majors as their number 1 pick last year. His car is always vanishing from the parking lot. He decided to strike back and he got hit even harder.
He walked to his locker yesterday morning to find that all of his sliders, his baseball underwear, had been slit down the middle. Brackman’s Yankees cap and a lot of his shoes suffered the same fate. Owned.
“If you get hit by a veteran and fire back,” one Yankee insider noted, “they come at you 10 times harder.”
According to the Post, LaTroy Hawkins and Brian Bruney are behind the prank war against the rookie. Bruney did a great job pranking the entire team last season by walking a batter every time he came into the game.
