The Orioles and MASN have been promoting Aubrey Huff‘s fan Q&A at the ESPNZone in the Inner Harbor for a few weeks. Being a Huff advocate and a fan of the fire he brings to the O’s I decided to stop by.
Below is a a video of some of the best questions from Huff’s session.
I was very impressed by the crowd. I arrived at 11:30 and waited outside for 20 minutes while fans poured into the ESPNZone. Tom Davis hosted the Q&A and gave the fans a very personable feel with the Orioles’ first baseman.
Huff is a WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet kind of guy. He referenced his comment’s about the city of Baltimore on Bubba the love Sponge in 2007 and just laughed it off. Huff enjoys a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich from his days in the minor leagues with chunky peanut butter of course, was a basketball player but gave up because he is a “6′ 4″ white guy”, and changed his number to 17 in honor of his friend Joe Kennedy who passed away in 2008.
He signed every fan’s autograph and talked to everyone as they went by.
Overall I thought Aubrey Huff was one of the classiest athletes I’ve come in contact with.
