Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie rides his bike to the ballpark six days a week. Apparently, our home-boys are some serious cyclists.
Fans are accustomed to the players’ lot being filled with expensive rides – sports cars, HUVs, private jets. But you should check out the clubhouse sometime, or the weight room. There are enough bikes parked there to hold the Tour de France. I keep waiting for players to change into yellow jerseys, though that honor probably should be delayed until they’re in first place.
At last count, the cyclists include Guthrie, Luke Scott, Aubrey Huff, Brian Burres, Garrett Olson and Lance Cormier. Nick Markakis dropped out after buying a house in Monkton.
The Orioles might be the only team that has more use for a bike rack than a bat rack.
