Oriole #898- Ryan Adams
Here he is at second base in the top of the first, technically making his debut
That's him on deck in the bottom of the second
And here he is on first base, after singling to left in his second AB in the bottom of the fourth
All-in-all, he had a decent debut, going 1-4, scoring a run and helping to turn a double play in the field. Unfortunately, the game was a clunker for the O's who lost by twelve runs to the offensively challenged Nationals. It figures that Friday was the only game I made it to over the weekend, since the O's put the Nats away on Saturday and Sunday to win the series, even though they were still outscored in the series due to Friday's blowout.
Since Adams has played at every level of the Orioles farm system, I've had the chance to get his autograph a number of times over the past three seasons.
Along with the Bowman Certified auto at the top of the post, I've gotten these cards of his signed, probably along with a few others that I never scanned. If any of you Orioles collectors would like to trade for one, just let me know. I think I will be adding the bottom Bowman Heritage card to my Orioles autograph binder.
Since it sounds like B-Rob might be out for a little while, I hope that Ryan gets a chance to show what he's got for the O's. Good luck to him.
