The newest member of the Orioles, and perhaps now an instant fan favorite with his now infamous cat-call “Luuuuukkkkkkkeeeeee”, today spent some of his afternoon at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
He held a Q&A and an autograph session for fans during the lunch hour in the busy city.
A seemingly humble and reflective man, Luke talked about his life in the minors in the Astros organization, his road to the majors and his personal experiences along with perseverance have shaped his time in the big leagues.
A main of faith; he told the crowd upon being called to the majors, he broke down and cried.
In the past few weeks, I gotten to see him up close on the field, and we all as fans can agree, he’s had a hot start to the 2008 campaign and is nothing but a welcome addition to the organization,
Although he’s 29, and is in no shape or form still a prospect – he knows all too well that being in the majors is a not a right – but a privilege, and he intends to stay here.
All in all, he is extremely likable, and very personable. I knew based on what I have read about him, he’s a down to earth individual, and what you see with Scott is what you get,
The Q&A portion went on for about 20-25 minutes with sports personality, Tom Davis, and fans that were able to play hooky from work or visit the ESPN Zone during their lunch hour got to get their memorabilia signed and get some face time with Luke.
