During the Los Angeles Dodgers win against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, Clayton Kershaw had a little fun with Alex Wood in the dugout. Scott Van Slyke was his accomplice in the task at hand and new teammates Josh Reddick and Rich Hill watched on without helping poor Alex.
Making the comical situation even better was the commentary of Vin Scully. Commenting on Kersh’s chid-like “devilish grin” as he stacked more and more sunflower seeds on Wood’s back.
Sometimes things may get a bit dull in the dugout during a game and it’s always funny to see MLB players pulling pranks on each other like a team of little league players.
Wood is known for having fun in the dugout as well. Remember the Dodgers-Padres 17-inning game?

Wood has been dealing with elbow issues and underwent surgery to correct the problem. The last update for the 25-year-old pitcher came in the end of July.
If Alex Wood returns this season, he'll pitch out of bullpen, Dave Roberts said. #Dodgers
