Going undercover, Hall of Famer Greg Maddux pranks Cubs' Kris Bryant

Cubs third baseman and 2016 NL MVP Kris Bryant thought he was shooting a promotional video for Red Bull, but he was actually being pranked by Hall of Famer Greg Maddux.

Kris Bryant is just the latest batter to be fooled by the Mad Dog. Maddux, disguised as the 'sound guy, ' was standing behind the batting cage and Bryant, now a World Series champion, had no idea who he was. Spring training is great!

"Don't hit me", said Bryant.

The new G6 smartphone is "expected to kick off an era of premium smartphones with 18:9 screen aspect ratios", it is claimed. It will let users take a picture and then review the photo they just took at the same time in two identical ideal squares.

Finally, Maddux came clean and Bryant felt a bit better about getting worked by a "sound guy".

Watching Bryant trying to understand how the sound guy could be so good as a pitcher was hilarious, especially when he couldn't handle the Maddux curveball.

Maddux is now an assistant baseball coach for UNLV, where he serves as the pitching coach.

Another study showed patients who took deflazacort lost the ability to walk later than patients who took placebo. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is caused by an absence of a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact.

After an extended outro where Bryant kept prodding Maddux for more pitches, Bryant agreed to give the sound guy a signed bat.

After Bryant hit one over the fence, Maddux approached Bryant and asked for an autograph to be made out to Greg Maddux.

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