During Orioles FanFest, pitcher Tommy Hunter spoke with the media for a few minutes, and I’ll say that he’s one of the funnier, candid and more laid back athletes I’ve met on the team.
It was certainly a delight to interview him, and he seemed very much ready for camp to open up towards the middle of this month.
As we know, Tommy is a big boy – as he is currently listed at over 6-foot-3 and 280 pounds. However, over the offseason, he lost about 20 pounds (so far) and looks somewhat smaller thanks to workouts and training with Brady Anderson out West.
He updated everyone on his workouts, status heading into Spring Training, his experiences with the Texas Rangers, Baltimore Orioles and outlook for the season.
Here are some quotes and notes I was able to pick up from him.
