Great prank! It's amazing they were able to keep it up. Also, all the old footage and the pacing and production were quite well done as well.

What an idiot! (I probably would have fell for it too...)
Better looking with the lights out.

Whether you would have fallen for it or not, the sentiment about his intelligence is spot on. The man had ridiculous natural talent, but he would never listen to anyone on working at better learning the strike zone to become a more complete hitter.

Deadspin comment:

Jeff Francouer has also been the victim of a career long prank where he believes every pitch is a strike

I kept expecting that the end of the video would be that we, the audience, had been pranked into believing someone could be pranked like that. But as it turns out, great prank.
