10 Questions With Orioles Reliever Richard Bleier

June 10, 2018
PressBox caught up with Orioles reliever Richard Bleier to ask him about his childhood sports hero, his cooking abilities and his dog, Rocky. 

PressBox: What's a habit you wish you didn't have?
Richard Bleier: I've got a sweet tooth. It's not a habit, but it's definitely something I could get rid of.
PB: What's your favorite guilty pleasure fast-food order? 
RB: After a long day of fishing, I will go to McDonald's and order a bunch of double cheeseburgers.
PB: What's your favorite pregame meal or snack? 
RB: Lately, I've been doing a burger with an egg on it.
PB: Who was your favorite sports star when you were a kid?
RB: Ken Griffey, Jr.
PB: What would you be doing if you weren't playing baseball?  
RB: I was a year away from getting a degree in criminal justice, so probably something in law enforcement.
PB: Are you a good cook? What's your best dish?
RB: Fish we catch and cook up the same night. It's pretty hard to mess that up.
PB: What's your favorite thing to do on an off-day?
RB: We'll take the dog out and let him play at a dog park.

PB: What kind of dog do you have?
RB: A lab mix named Rocky. We got him from the humane society.
PB: What's your all-time favorite movie?
RB: "Austin Powers in Goldmember."
PB: What exercise do you hate doing?
RB: Running. You've got to do it, though.
