Matt Wieters at the ESPN Zone – Photos and Very Brief Thoughts…

On Monday afternoon, the ESPN Zone in Downtown Baltimore held their second Q&A of the season. This time, featured this time around was Oriole catcher Matt Wieters. CBS Radio/MASN’s Tom Davis emceed the event.

Unlike in years past, Wieters’ Q&A literally had the place packed. From what I got from the staff at the ESPN Zone, the first patron was in line as early as 7am to be first into the building.

Then again, from the line I saw approaching the restaurant – it extended almost down Pratt Street near the back lot – fans had to get there early this time around.

The Q&A barely lasted ten minutes due to the overflow crowd – in and out – of the ESPN Zone, plus trying to get many fans as possible through the autograph line.

Wieters talked about the season so far, life in the majors, finding out he’d be called up to the majors (almost one year to the day), Baltimore and other miscellaneous items (he’s a Cowboys fan).

This time, I’ve got only got photos. There’s no video or sound this time due to not having a space to really setup anything as every stool and table was literally occupied well before I got there.
