After postseason woes of his own, Orioles’ All-Star center fielder Adam Jones has spent his offseason as an extra Baltimore Ravens cheerleader to ensure that the city’s football squad did not face similar playoff dysfunctions. Jones’ cheering is best seen in the semi-viral picture from Denver that shows the slugger yelling at Super Bowl MVP and now-elite quarterback Joe Flacco as he jogs out of the tunnel:
Now, after celebrating the Ravens’ victory in New Orleans with the rest of the Baltimore faithful that made the trip, Jones plans on doing some lobbying directed towards the front office of his team:
I’m going to try my hardest to get Ray Lewis to throw out the first pitch for our opening day. Couldn’t have a better person for that day.

I’m sure the Orioles brass already had the idea.
Oh, and by the way, Deion Sanders wants a piece of that first pitch, too:
@simplyaj10 and i want to hit it after he throws it. Lol
