They Said It On Glenn Clark Radio: May 2016

May 16, 2016
Andy Lopez, Joey Rickard's coach at Arizona, joined Glenn Clark Radio April 8 to talk about the Orioles' outfielder's hot start to the 2016 season. 

"I'll tell you a quick story about his freshman year. My sons were on the team here in 2010 and 2012, and they were teammates on that national championship team. So they came over the house, Joey came over the house. I was joking with him about this. … I think it was like their second week on campus, so they all came over the house. My sons brought them over, some of the players, and Joey was one of them, and I really like Rocky Road ice cream. Coach Lopez has a real weakness, [not many], but this is one -- I love Rocky Road ice cream. So they were swimming in our pool; it was hot, you know Tucson weather in August; it was boiling hot. So they're swimming in our pool, they come in our house, and my sons, David and Michael, said, 'Hey guys, go in the refrigerator and get whatever you want,' and I'm sitting there watching TV, and Rickard comes out with a bowl of Rocky Road ice cream, the carton. Not just the bowl, the carton, and he's sitting there eating it, and I'm looking at him, and my boys know, 'Hey man, you're eating dad's favorite ice cream.' And I finally turn to him, and I go, 'Hey Rick, I mean, you're eating the only thing I really crave in life,' and he looks at me and went, 'Oh, I'm sorry, Lopes,' and just kept eating it. That's when I knew … this guy is going to be OK. I mean, he wasn't intimidated. He just goes, 'Oh, I'm sorry, Lopes,' and just went about his business. He's a solid young man -- I really am happy for him."
