Adam Jones, 2012 Topps 1987 Mini #TM-29
There are numerous reasons why I am glad that Adam Jones will be an Oriole for the foreseeable future. Reason number 76 is the prank that he pulled on Kevin Gausman last week. Gausman was the Orioles' first-round draft pick last year, a pitcher out of Louisiana State University. The young righthander has a reputation as something of a flake, thanks in part to his game-day superstition of eating four Hostess powdered mini-donuts after each inning. So Jones welcomed Gausman to Spring Training by filling the youngster's locker with 1,500 powdered donuts. Camden Chat has the photo evidence. It takes a true team leader to keep his teammates supplied with sugary baked goods.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
