Brett Phillips came in to pitch during his Tampa Bay Rays’ blowout loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday, and his appearance was hilarious.
Phillips is a versatile player who plays all three outfield spots. But he made his MLB pitching debut since his team was down 10-1 in the 9th. From his pitching motion to his entire attitude, everything was funny.
Let’s start with what a goofball he looked like warming up:

He actually got called for a balk on that one.
Now take a look at his motion:

Nobody had more fun losing than Phillips. That was great.
In all, Phillips gave up two hits, two walks and a run in his one inning of work. He touched 94 mph on his fastball but mostly threw lollipops. And he gave the fans a laugh.
Phillips also has the greatest laugh in sports, too.
