Career highlights and awards

Adam LaMarque Jones (born August 1, 1985, in San Diego, California) is an outfielder for the Baltimore Orioles. He was originally drafted by the Seattle Mariners with the 37th pick of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft as a shortstop/right-handed pitcher. Most experts believed that Seattle wanted to use him as a pitcher, but Jones said he would prefer to play everyday and was made the shortstop of the Mariners' rookie league affiliate. A few years later when the Mariners acquired Yuniesky Betancourt, they asked Jones if he would move to the outfield. He agreed to give it a try and has continued to improve ever since.

Biography

Seattle Mariners

He shot through the Mariners minor league system in a relatively short amount of time. On July 12, 2006, he was called up to the Mariners to replace the injured Jeremy Reed.

On August 10, 2006, Jones hit his first major league home run against Adam Eaton of the Texas Rangers.

On August 3, 2007, Jones returned to the majors for the first time on the season, starting in right field for the Mariners against the Boston Red Sox, going 2–4 and scoring the go-ahead run in a 7–4 victory.

Baltimore Orioles

On February 8, 2008, Jones was traded to the Baltimore Orioles along with left-handed reliever George Sherrill and minor league pitchers Kameron Mickolio, Chris Tillman, and Tony Butler for the left-handed starting pitcher Érik Bédard.[1]. Jones went on to become the Orioles' starting center fielder and Sherrill became the new closer, while Bédard tore his labrum in September 2008 after going 6-4 with a 3.67 ERA.[2]

On September 21, 2008, Jones hit the final triple at Yankee Stadium in the second inning off Andy Pettite and later that inning scored the first run of the game.

In 2009, Adam Jones started the year off strong and on July 5, 2009 Adam was selected to represent Baltimore in the 2009 All Star Game. In the game, Jones drove in Curtis Granderson off a sac fly for the winning run in the American League's 4-3 victory. Throughout the 2009 season, he played center field exclusively. In the lineup, he has batted in both the 2 and 3 spots, switching with fellow outfielder Nick Markakis. In August, Jones sprained his left ankle and missed the end of the 2009 season.

On November 10, 2009, Adam Jones was awarded a Gold Glove for his defensive play in center field during the 2009 season.[3]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
