Pranks are a part of day-to-day life in an MLB clubhouse, but taking them to the dugout is a new phenomenon.
For Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano, a second day off courtesy of manager Paul Molitor provided the perfect opportunity to scare the crap out of pitching coach Neil Allen with a little help.
No, that’s not a real snake – it’s a rubber one.
Still, it did the job as intended and gave Sano and his teammates something to razz their coach about in the coming days and weeks.
Pretty good fodder for a 26-20 team sitting atop the AL Central.
