The Baltimore Orioles — yes, the Baltimore Orioles — clinched their first AL East division title in 17 years on Tuesday night with an 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. The O’s haven’t exactly had the best attendance all season (14th in the MLB with a ballpark that is 66% full on average), but Adam Jones didn’t hold that against the fans who stuck around celebrate with the team.
Jones incorporated several fans into the popular pie-to-the-face celebration ritual. The star center fielder smashed several Orioles fans with pies and gave them a moment they’ll remember forever.
Baseball players love to celebrate after a long season, and we have seen teams shower fans in champagne and beer on several occasions. Jones’ approach was refreshingly original.
