“Crab cakes and football, that’s what Maryland does.”
For newest Oriole Adley Rutschman, this is an especially fitting movie quote. The Oregon State catcher famously kicked for his school’s football team as a freshman, though he assured NBC Sports Washington that he’s “washed” when it comes to that career.
More importantly for him is the crab cakes.
Rutschman is a self-described food person, so the draw of trying some Charm City crab cakes is real.
“I actually got a comment on my Instagram about that,” Rutschman laughed. “I didn’t understand it, but now that you’re bringing that up, big fan of crab cakes. I’m a big time food person, and I like quality food, and seafood is definitely along those lines as well.”
Feel free to let Rutschman know on social media where the best local spots are for great crab dishes.
It's crucial for him to speak well of seafood to ensure continued success in his career, regardless of whether or not he really believes it.
Thankfully for O’s fans, it seems like he’s telling the truth. Yet another reason why Rutschman was the perfect pick for Mike Elias’ first selection in Baltimore.
