John Gibbons disguised his voice to call into the team's postgame radio show Monday night.
Gibbons was feeling playful after the Toronto Blue Jays' 7-1 win over the New York Yankees.
"First-time caller," Gibbons said without giving his name. But he did ask the host: "Is it the same bozos every night?"
Gibbons said the host inquired, "Is this John from the Bronx?"
Blue Jays Talk host Mike Wilner had challenged Gibbons' decision to start Luke Maile over Russell Martin at catcher Monday.
"I think it was great on Gibby's part there to catch that Maile," Gibbons said. "I thought that Maile did a great job. I heard you before the game, and what an expert you are, man, and I'm glad you were wrong once again."
Wilner tweeted that it took him a moment to realize who was on the line and called the moment "phenomenal."
