#1 Hidden Ball Trick
Basic Instructions: Conceal the location of the ball from the baserunner in hopes he strays away from the base, allowing you to then tag him out.
Advanced Instructions: Take a ton of steroids to help you hit home runs against unsuspecting pitchers. Meanwhile, your balls will disappear.
#2 Surprise Onside Kick
Basic Instructions: Line up for a regular kickoff, but have your kicker tap the ball only 10 yards ahead in hopes of catching the opposition by surprise so you can regain possession of the ball.
Advanced Instructions: Turn the prank on your kicker by just standing there after he kicks the ball, leaving him as the only player on your team trying to chase it down. It will be hilarious when the little guy gets creamed by the opposing team.
#3 Pump Fake
Basic Instructions: Feign taking a jump shot, but don't leave the ground. This can cause your defender to leap into the air or lose his balance, allowing you to drive past him to the basket or shoot uncontested.
Advanced Instructions: If you just got pump-faked by someone, when they go up to shoot as you are coming back down to the ground, punch them in the crotch Kevin Garnett-style. Prank back at you!

Big deal. Anyone can do that when they're not drunk from actually playing beer pong.

#10 "Little Big League" (1994)
Sure, skimpy payrolls and watching Nick Punto bat have been hard on Minnesota Twins fans, but this stinker came up with an alternate reality that was far, far grimmer.
A preteen inherits the franchise and proceeds to install himself as the team's manager and suddenly the moribund team gets hot. (Note to the Royals: it's worth a shot.) And can you believe the players even help their skipper with his math homework?!
If this is the kind of family comedy you have to watch with your kids, dying alone might not be such a bad alternative.
#9 "Summer Catch" (2001)
Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard playing in the Cape Cod League? What could go wrong? Other than the acting. And the baseball scenes. Oh, and the dialogue. And the soundtrack featuring Semisonic and Fastball.
Still, this one could have been a hit if the producers had marketed it properly. Who could turn resist the allure of "Brian Dennehy and Wilmer Valderrama together at last!" on a marquee?
