Even little kids are making fun of Juan Uribe after he fell for the hidden-ball trick

We're still amused by the fact that Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe got duped by the ol' hidden-ball trick on Saturday. Plenty of people are, actually — even young Dodger fans.

Watch what happened before Tuesday's game when a kid took the field with Uribe. The youngster got an autograph, then tagged out Uribe, who was standing a foot away from third base.

Right after Saturday's game, Uribe's teammates gave him a "present" — his cleat taped to a base — to commemorate his falling for a Little League trick. And now he's getting goofed on by a kid? That's even worse. Voice of the Dodgers Vin Scully said Uribe's teammates put the kid up to the gag, and if Vin is saying it, it's gotta be true.

Can't you see this becoming a meme? The Dodgers can get various people to tag out Uribe. Maybe Vin is next. Or their new mascot Danny DeVito. With all the notable folks who swing by Dodgers games, it could get funny if random celebs starting running up on Uribe before games and tagging him out.
