Flashback Friday: Vernon Wells Attacks Aaron Hill with a Dart Gun

My apologies for the lateness and briefness of this week’s Flashback Friday post, but on the heels of Wells’ return to Toronto last week, I thought I would share one of my favourite Vernon Wells memories.

It’s Vernon up to his old tricks in the Blue Jays clubhouse shooting Aaron Hill with a dart gun while Hill was mid-interview. It made for some pretty entertaining television.


What adds to the hilarity was the fact that Vernon Wells was wearing only a towel as he planned the hit on his teammate. Props to Aaron Hill for maintaining his composure as he was pelted with numerous nerf darts in the shoulder.

    Haha, my finely tuned video capturing skills! I still can't believe YouTube hasn't pulled it and sent me a strongly worded email about MLB properties yet.

    Sarah, thanks for capturing it! You should be okay – MLB usually sniffs out their videos on Youtube better than a basset hound, but its not actually MLB footage.

    And with that, hopefully I didn't just alert the authorities!
