Orioles center fielder Adam Jones has long been renowned for his involvement in the Baltimore community, and during this past season, the five-time All-Star partnered with the #MLBmemorybank program to go undercover at a local school.

Disguised as substitute teacher Herbert Garfield -- wearing 1970s-style glasses, a brown sport coat, striped socks and what he called "teacher shoes" -- Jones visited a class at The SEED School of Maryland in Baltimore. He quickly revealed his true identity to the students' delight, and treated them with tickets to the Orioles' game that night. Below is video of Jones' visit, courtesy of MLB.com.


On top of that reveal, Jones will be featured on Cartoon Network on Saturday at 12:15 p.m. in a World Series-themed episode of the show, "Uncle Grandpa."

In the episode, Uncle Grandpa enlists Jones, Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer, Houston Astros second baseman José Altuve, Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price and New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard to help train his struggling Little League team.

Below is a clip from the episode.
