This Milwaukee Brewers player has the best laugh in baseball

Brett Phillips is a minor-league outfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers with a major-league laugh.

Phillips, 21, cannot contain that honking laugh in a hilarious video posted by the Brewers in which Milwaukee pitcher Will Smith tells him a series of deadpan jokes as part of their #MomJokeMonday campaign in spring training.

Smith is telling the jokes but ends up laughing even harder in reaction to Phillips' infectious laugh, which leaves them both doubled over. Sounding like a strangled goose or a donkey out of breath, Phillips hearkens back to the famous laugh of Louis Skolnick from "Revenge of The Nerds."

Phillips, who is one of the Brewers' top prospects, has been leaving people cracking up at his laugh for years.

“It’s been there my whole life,” he told Yahoo! Sports. “I’ve laughed like this my whole life. I’m sure you’ve already seen comments (on the Internet) like, ‘Oh I still have videos of him from back in high school or middle school. Oh, I remember that kid’s laugh from class.’

“I’ve tried to keep it hidden as long as possible. (My teammates) caught wind of it and seem to try and bring it out every day now. Which is out of control.”
