Madison Bumgarner has been competing in rodeo events under the alias Mason Saunders.

The Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher won $26,560 in a team-roping competition in December.

Bumgarner told The Athletic that he has discreetly competed in rodeos for a while, including in March of last year, two days before he pitched for the San Francisco Giants in a Cactus League game.

He agreed to a five-year, $85 million deal with Arizona about two weeks after he won the rodeo competition in Arizona.
