"Adam goes above and beyond," said Mike Gibbons, the executive director of the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation. "We see Adam Jones. Adam is out in the community and he's the face of the Orioles franchise. He's had a steady, continued impact on the local community, especially with an emphasis on underprivileged kids around here. For a guy of his posture, as the face of the Orioles, I think that makes him very, very special."
