This prank in Ohio is a real winner.
Franklin High School's athletic director, Brian Bales, was surely dumbfounded when he got a bit of interesting news on Saturday.
He was quoted by MaxPreps as saying,
I got a call from our parks and recreation guy saying that we might have to cancel the doubleheader. The weather was beautiful out, so I asked him what for. He told me there was a 25-foot tree planted between home plate and the pitcher's mound.
A picture of the scene of the crime soon did its rounds on Twitter -- to the tune of over 12,000 retweets.

The tree has since been removed, but even Bales had to give credit for how original the prank was.
I've seen a lot of pranks but that's a new one... I'm going to look into it, and there will be consequences.
If that consequence doesn't involve a better comeback prank, though, Bales might as well just take the loss on this one.
