'Two Minutes with ...' focuses on Lough
SARASOTA, Fla. -- The "Two Minutes with…" series continues with new Orioles left fielder David Lough, who was acquired in a trade this winter from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for Danny Valencia. The 28-year-old outfielder, expected to take the left-field spot vacated by Nate McLouth, batted .286/.311/.413 with five home runs and 33 RBIs in 96 games last season.
Lough was drafted in the 11th round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft and is from Akron, Ohio.
Favorite food: Steak and sweet potatoes. I like the filet, a nice filet.
Favorite movie: Dumb and Dumber. I can't wait for [the sequel] to come out. [But] I can't see it being better.
Hidden talent: I thought I was good at ping-pong until I saw some of these other guys playing in here. [Laughs]. I don't have anything else cool, I'm boring.
If I wasn't a baseball player I'd be … a personal trainer. I'm into the whole workout stuff. I actually have a certification in personal training already. I got it just from playing. I picked up a book about it, studied for a year and took the test. I did it during the season a couple years ago.
Favorite offseason place: My aunt's woods for hunting. It's in Akron. I hunt for deer, I've got a bow that I use.
Prized possession: Probably my computer, it's got a lot of important stuff on it.
