Bundy gets the call—on bullpen phone

Now pitching for the Baltimore Orioles, Dylan Bundy!


“Tommy Hunter answered the phone and told me I was going in. I said, ‘What?’ and I couldn’t find my glove. Took me about a minute to find it,” Bundy said. “He told me to get going, so I was like, OK, its happening, and I got loose as quick as I could.”

I was at Fenway yesterday and I have to admit I was pretty excited when he came in. The scoreboard flashed a brief "This is Dylan Bundy's MLB debut" message and the Oriole fans around me got pretty fired up.

Apparently, he was a standout at Polk High.

Do the Orioles typically use means of communication other than the bullpen phone for alerting relief pitchers their services may be needed?

As a multi-sport athlete as well. Scored 4 touchdowns in one game!
