USD's Kris Bryant pranked by Greg Maddux, Red Bull

17 February, 2017, 00:33 | Author: Nora May

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.

National Football League warns Seahawks for not listing Richard Sherman on injury report
The controversy didn't begin until after the season, when Pete Carroll revealed that his star cornerback played a substantial chunk of the season with an MCL injury.


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.
