On Opening Day, Pittsburgh Pirates ace A.J. Burnett accomplished one of the most difficult feats in all of baseball: he exploded the rosin bag.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t an accomplishment at all, as A.J. was instead the victim of a hilarious prank by his teammates. You want proof? I’ll give you proof.
Evidence A: Opening Day this year fell on April Fool’s Day.
Evidence B: They did it to him again on Sunday in his first start after returning from the disabled list.
