Cubs' Kris Bryant pranked by Hall of Famer in disguise

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

My favorite part of this is after the reveal, when Bryant asks Maddux if he still wants his bat...and Maddux gives a deadpan "no" in response.

Though Bryant doesn't know it's Maddux, when he says "sound guy's got a good curve ball", he follows it up with (while laughing), "what is this?"

What if the comment-for-everything sound guy was former Atlanta Braves pitcher and Hall of Famer Greg Maddux?

The Chicago Cubs third baseman and reigning NL MVP was at the College of Southern Nevada getting some light offseason batting practice in.

Bryant laughed when Maddux took the mound, but was impressed by the throws he was facing.

"This sound guy has got a good curveball". Bryant chuckled dismissively when the "sound guy" was giving him tips from behind the batting cage.

Greg Maddux is one of the greatest pitchers of all time.

Then the pitcher took a phone call and said he had to leave, so Maddux took over. Bryant showed up to a Mesa Community College practice as a "transfer student" previous year and blew everyone away.
