Jeremy Guthrie at The ESPN Zone...

During the All-Star Break (the Monday before the game itself), Oriole ace Jeremy Guthrie entertained fans at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. I was not there in attendance, but ESPN Zone regional manager, Leigh Friedman, gave a little rundown of the event.

The hurler was very personable and giving of his time with the fans along with kids in attendance -- not to mention very good at all the games. Guthrie played against fans on games including air hockey to jet skiing to car racing.

Being the athlete he is, Jeremy especially impressed everyone with his abilities on the basketball (shooting) and football (passing) games, as well he also took a turn as a switch-hitter in the baseball game.

Fans were asked to donate $5 to play against Guthrie, with all proceeds going to Orioles charities. Aside from supporting a good cause, fans definitely got their money's worth.

Guthrie played the games at length, talked one-on-one with the fans, signed autographs, and posed for lots of pictures. All participants also received ESPN Zone and Orioles prizes.
