Trevor Bauer will soon be in touch with his service provider.
While Bauer was being interviewed — via FaceTime — during an ESPN2 broadcast of a Korean Baseball Organization game, the Reds pitcher’s phone number was broadcast to the world above his head on screen.
After his contact was shared, Bauer decided to have fun with the mishap, offering a prize for fans who called his number.
“So @espn has just leaked my number to truly the entire world lol in honor of this…shall we call it…massive screw up…I’m doing a giveaway!” Bauer wrote on Twitter. “I’ll be giving away a pair of signed cleats and an autographed baseball over the next 48 hours. Rules are in my voicemail! Good luck!”
ESPN recently struck a deal to air KBO League games with MLB’s season still delayed because of the coronavirus.
