What is March Madness without poking a little fun at your friends who are fans or alums of the teams in the tournament. At the Minnesota Twins spring training, they’re having some fun as well. Twins pitcher Glen Perkins and manager Ron Gardenhire pulled a prank on pitcher Mike Pelfrey, who went to Wichita State.
Gardenhire calls Pelfrey into the office and tells him that Wichita State are trying to get notable alumni to give the team a pep talk to get them fired up. Pelfrey says he isn’t necessarily comfortable cause he hasn’t done anything like that before and Gardenhire kinda forces him.
Pelfrey thinks Gardenhire is calling Wichita State, but instead he calls Perkins who is in the clubhouse with him on speaker. As Pelfrey tries to pump them up, Gardenhire is basically heckling him. Cutting him off, and telling him to sit his ass down all while supposedly on speaker phone.
