Not even the 2013 World Series Most Valuable Player is immune to getting pranked at his own charity event.

At the David Ortiz Children's Fund Celebrity Golf Classic in the Dominican Republic back in December, Big Papi, former MLB catcher Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez and golf trick-shot artist Trevor Consavage had some fun on the course.

The video starts off with Consavage and Pudge both pulling off the trick shot by chipping the ball with a golf club and crushing it with a baseball bat.

Pretty sweet.

When it was time for Big Papi to attempt it, Consavage did the chipping for the designated hitter. The shot didn't go as planned for Ortiz, who could do nothing but give a great reaction.

No matter how many times you see it, the exploding ball trick never gets old.
