It’s possible, tho it would not have been “for the bullpen”. More likely one of those spontaneous eruptions to which we were all prone from time to time.

To place things in context, my mother had the LP of MY FAIR LADY (original Broadway production) which she played constantly when I was a kid. Result, I memorized ALL the songs.
