Former Red pulls a prank on his teammate

When Cincy included 1B Yonder Alonso in the trade package that brought Mat Latos to the Queen City this offseason, a lot of folks around Reds country were sad to see the young slugger go. Not just because he's a formidable threat at the plate, but because of his outgoing and friendly persona as well.

Seen here is the former Red pulling a fast one on San Diego Padre teammate Cameron Maybin at a NYC burger joint. The trickster Alonso reeled in several people to help pull off a prank usually reserved for an episode of MTV's Punk'd.

As a guy who was fortunate enough to meet Yonder back in September of last year, I can attest that he seems like one of the nicest, down-to-earth person that you'd ever want to meet. I'm certainly rooting for him and I know many around Cincinnati are too. Especially if he continues to pull shenanigans for our viewing entertainment like this one!

The Miami Hurricane alum currently paces all National League rookies in hits (50), doubles (16), and walks (22) while sporting a .279 average.
