Greg Maddux did gross shower prank on rookies

Greg Maddux: World class pitcher. Soon-to-be-enshrined player in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Legendary prankster. Shower urinator. The last two notable aspects of Maddux’s public persona go hand-in-hand — and hand in … never mind — as the pantheon of great Greg Maddux stories has received a rather unsanitary addition related to the pitcher’s propensity […] The post Greg...
