We have all heard the classic, “dropped a deuce,” saying in sports.
Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Archie Bradley took this to a literal level when he revealed that he actually pooped in his pants and then pitched in a game.
During a podcast appearance on the Yahoo Sports MLB Podcast, Bradley spoke about the time this happened in a game:
“So it’s a 2-2 count, and I’m like, ‘Man, I have to pee. I have to go pee.’ So I run in our bathroom real quick, I’m ready to go. I’m trying to pee and I actually [expletive] my pants. Like right before I’m about to go in the game, I pooped my pants. I’m like ‘Oh my gosh.’ I know I’m a pitch away from going in the game, so I’m scrambling to clean myself up. I get it cleaned up the best I can, button my pants up, and our bullpen coach Mike Fetters says, ‘Hey, you’re in the game.’ So I’m jogging into the game to pitch with poop in my pants essentially.”
Give this man props, not many people would come out and talk about this…
And he did say that he pitched a “clean inning” while being a little dirty.
