Adam Jones, 2009 Bowman #183

What do you do with your time away from work when you're a 25-year-old baseball player? If you're Adam Jones, you visit Europe. Jones joined teammates Rick VandenHurk and Jeremy Guthrie and ex-Oriole Brady Anderson on a tour of Belgium and VandenHurk's home country, the Netherlands. They aimed to conduct free instructional clinics for children and to further foster interest in the game on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. The O's promising young outfielder extended his travels, and spent some time in Paris last week as well. On Twitter, he was offering to send postcards to his fans. Jones expressed his wonder that a majority of Europeans speak at least a small amount of English, and suggested that he would like to receive Rosetta Stone lessons in French for a Christmas gift. So that's a word to the wise if you happen to be Adam's Secret Santa...
