Sonoran Hot Reads: Joey Rickard loves him some Justin Bieber

Former Arizona Wildcat and 2012 National champ Joey Rickard has taken MLB by storm in the first week, and Baltimore Orioles fans have fallen in love with him the same way we did five years ago. Naturally, Rickard is picking up a lot of publicity and having tons of things written about him. One of them is this fun Q&A, and his passion for Justin Bieber is the highlight:

"I like Justin Bieber a little bit. He's come a long way, so I'm finally admitting that I listen to him. The new album is fabulous. In the clubhouse, I'm four games into my career, so I'm going to keep it on the DL for now. "Sorry" is my favorite. I watched him on the Grammys. His performance was great. I haven't seen him in concert. He was in Vegas a couple weeks ago, and then he was in Phoenix right after that and all my friends were going. But I still haven't made it to one. I would if I could, but I'd be pretty low-key about it. I wouldn't be Instagramming or anything like that."
