Earlier this week, Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant was filming an ad for Red Bull in Las Vegas. During the shoot, he took batting practice. When the BP pitcher had to bail, a heavily bearded crewmember in charge of the boom mic took over, and proceeded to mystify Bryant with an arsenal of off-speed pitches.
“The sound guy’s got a good curveball,” says a perplexed Bryant. At the end of BP, it’s revealed that the “sound guy” was Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux in disguise. At 50 years old, the former Atlanta Braves ace can still fool the reigning National League MVP.
