PITTSBURGH, PA -- When Bryan Morris arrived to the field in Indianapolis on Saturday afternoon, the right-hander went about his normal pregame activities. That was until Triple-A trainer Bryan Housand told him to go to the Manager's office.
"[Dean Treanor] sat me down and he just looked at me and said, ‘Are you ready to go tonight?’ I said, ‘Yes, sir.’ And he said something about the bullpen catcher, and he was like, ‘well, the big league bullpen catcher is pretty good.’ It shocked me at first. I was like, ‘Wait. What did you just say?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah. You heard me.’ He got up, shook my hand and actually bear hugged me. It was a pretty intense moment. It was good, it was exciting," Morris recalled in the Pirates Major League clubhouse on Sunday.
