At first glance, it looks like Minnesota Twins pitcher and former Husker Brian Duensing is getting blindsided by a teammate’s right handed jab to the jaw. Turns out this is a prank that has been the making for over an year.
Former Twins reliever Matt Maloney came up with the idea, knowing television cameras would capture it. They tried it last season, and again earlier this year, but it wasn’t until Friday’s Twins game at Chicago, that it worked without a hitch. Mike Berardino of pioneerpress.com gives us the low down.
Watch the perfectly executed punch to the “face.”
