Earlier this spring, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said the team's celebratory pie-in-the-face celebration was banned for safety reasons.
It took only one game -- albeit a long one -- for a celebratory dessert to work its way back into the Orioles' happy rituals.
Jones was ready Monday with what's being called a pie by some and a cake by others after catcher Matt Wieters' walk-off single gave the team a 3-2, Opening Day win over the Minnesota Twins. Jones stood in front of Wieters to minimize the surprise, and smashed the pastry in the veteran catcher's face during his postgame television interview.
