Minnesota Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey is a Wichita State University alum and is also very introverted.

He obviously doesn't like being the center of attention, which probably greatly conflicts with his chosen profession of being a Major League Baseball player.

Being fully aware of how uncomfortable he'd be in this situation, the Twins decided to prank Pelfrey by telling him that the Shockers basketball team from his alma mater needed an inspirational speech before their next game in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.

In reality, his Twins teammates were the ones on the other end of the phone.

Watch the awkwardness unfold below!
