  • WATCH: Greg Maddux pranks Kris Bryant during BP with his arsenal of pitches

Could Maddux have been able to work around the plate even with Bryant's insane coverage ability?

That's right, the sound guy was Maddux, who surprised Bryant with an array of breaking balls and a competitive fire saved for someone with the nickname "Mad Dog". Spring training is great! Could Bryant have dealt with Maddux's insane curveball or his pinpoint control?

What if the comment-for-everything sound guy was former Atlanta Braves pitcher and Hall of Famer Greg Maddux? "Just make it out to Greg Maddux..." Sound guy Maddox volunteered to step in, but Bryant was initially opposed to the idea.

Crowdsourcing the sky: Huge star database made available to the public
The scientists themselves have already begun looking through the observations and found over 100 likely planet candidates. Periodically, the team will supplement the dataset with further observations made by HIRES.


Then, the batting practice pitcher (who was in on the prank) said he had to go proctor a study hall for college players because another coach bailed.

Bryant didn't take him seriously as first, but discovered that this new pitcher had quite the arm.

Maddux is now the pitching coach for the UNLV baseball team. Luckily for Bryant, it wasn't one of Maddux's more vulgar pranks like peeing on someone's leg in the shower, and instead was a hidden identity prank.
