    Best Senior Prank Ever?

    Pranksters plant tree on Franklin baseball field | www.daytondailynews.com

    Pranksters have taken “Going Green” to a new level at Franklin High School.

    No one as yet has claimed responsibility, but someone or a group of people planted a tree in the middle of the high school baseball infield last weekend.

    A 25-foot tall tree between the pitcher’s mound and home plate greeted players who arrived for a doubleheader Saturday morning at Franklin Community Park.

    Franklin sophomore baseball player Evan Margerum took the photo that has made its way around Deadspin.com, Bleacherreport.com and Maxpreps.com.

    Michael Sander, Franklin School District Superintendent, said Tuesday the school administration is working to try and figure out who was behind the prank.

    “I understand senior pranks,” he said, but vandalism or criminal damaging cannot be condoned or tolerated.

    Sander said the city paid for the removal of the tree and repair of the section of the field between the mound and home plate.

    “If we can find out who did it, they’ll get the bill,” he said.

    Sander said no one seemed to know what type of tree was planted. He said in his 31 years in education, he’s never seen anything quite like it.

    Once the tree was removed by city park workers, Franklin swept Dixie.

    I don't think I'd laugh if I was a school administrator there, but since I'm not, .

    How much does it cost to remove a freshly planted tree?

    Definitely a unique prank. I'd like to see somebody try to do that to Coach Krumps' field at CCH...

    A kid from that school will be one of my teammates next year. Can't wait to ask him about it, cause that's hilarious!

    They should ease up on this one. It's a funny prank and the grass will grow back. I don't consider this one to be "vandalism".

    Best prank I ever heard was some kids let 3 goats lose in the school hallways. They painted numbers on them 1,2 and 4.
