Orioles center fielder Adam Jones can make diving catches and hit mammoth homers, but on Friday we will find out how good he is at ... bell ringing.
Jones will ring the closing bell on the New York Stock Exchange trading floor on Friday afternoon
Jones won his second Rawlings Gold Glove award last week – teammates Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy also won, giving the Orioles the most honorees in 2012 – and this year's recipients will be honored at a ceremony in New York that evening.
So to mark the occasion, Jones and Jim Lillie, the CEO of Jarden Corporation, which owns Rawlings, will ring the closing bell at 4 p.m. to mark the end of the trading day.
