Willie Mays + SpiderMan = Adam Jones Catch Yesterday

Video via BigLeadSports

Slowly Baltimore Orioles center fielder is turning into the super star scouts projected when he was first drafted as a short stop in the Seattle Mariners organization. The fleet footed Jones aka Bazooka Jones made one of the best outfield catches I have ever seen. I don't think people realize how hard of a catch it was for Jones. He basically was going full force into the centerfield wall and yet still had enough concentration to make the catch while leaping to brace himself. To top it off he hit the game winning home run, went 3-4 at the plate and helped snapped a 5 game skid for the streaky O's who got a solid first start from ace Brian Matusz who just came off the DL. Not a bad day at the office for Jonesy.
