The Wichita State Shockers have now been eliminated from the NCAA tournament and after a brutal last second loss to Kentucky, some have wondered what they could have accomplished with just a little bit more motivation.

Well, Mike Pelfrey of the Minnesota Twins and formerly a student at Wichita State thought he was providing just that motivation when his manager called him into the office for a few words last week.

Manager, Ron Gardenhire told Pelfrey that he had the Shockers on the phone ready to hear some words of inspiration. Pelfey bumbled his way through a short speech of motivation only to find out that he was not actually talking to the basketball team.

Instead he had been addressing his Twins teammates in the locker room.

After the gag, Pelfrey said that:"It was in good fun. I thought it was funny. I probably could've done without the whole world seeing it."

Well if you haven't seen it yet, you can check it out above courtesy of TMZ Sports.
