Greg Maddux pulls off impressive prank on Kris Bryant during workout shoot

Kris Bryant thought he was shooting a pretty standard baseball workout video earlier this week in Las Vegas. The people at Red Bull had a better plan, enlisting Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux to prank the Cubs third baseman by posing as a bearded (and chatty) sound guy. When the batting practice pitcher is suddenly called away for a conflict, the sound guy volunteers to step in, much to Bryant's surprise.

Maddux is currently the pitching coach for the UNLV baseball team. From the looks of it, the 50-year-old still has some pretty decent movement on his legendary curveball.
