Jose Bautista pranks Yankees fans with end-of-inning pump fake

At the end of an inning, outfielders will often toss a baseball into the stands to give the fans a nice souvenir. Usually, the colors on the jersey don't matter much; although, a visiting player will occasionally try to find a fan of his team. But sometimes, the visitors take the opportunity to do a bit of trolling.

On Saturday, during a matchup between the Blue Jays and Yankees, outfielder Jose Bautista gestured toward the Yankee Stadium outfield and made like he was going to throw a ball into the stands.

SIKE!

Sorry, Joey. Some fans just can't be unpranked.
