Best intro ever? University of Oregon takes field behind bagpipe-playing relief pitcher

Kevin Kaduk

For the past few weeks, I've been wondering how Brian Wilson might be best able to serve the San Francisco Giants as he recovers from season-ending Tommy John surgery.

After watching this video, I now have a pretty good idea. The eccentric closer can don a kilt and get rid of some of his extra hot air by leading the rest of the Giants bullpen onto the field with a set of bagpipes — just like University of Oregon relief pitcher David Wylie does:


Ah, as Harry Caray used to say, you can't beat fun at the old ballpark, friends.

Make no mistake, either: That really is Wylie squawking his Duck teammates onto the field. The junior right-hander has "enjoys playing the bagpipes" listed in the personal section of his Oregon biography.
