Adam Jones, 2012 Topps Heritage Black Bordered #HP45
Mariano Rivera has allowed just 67 home runs in 1,253 innings pitched in his Hall of Fame-caliber career. He had not been taken deep in New York since August 2011, and had not blown a save at home since September 2010. Those were the odds Adam Jones was facing when he took an off-target Rivera cutter out to left field in Yankee Stadium this afternoon, turning a likely 1-0 loss into a thrilling 2-1 victory. I'll remember that one for a long time.
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.
