Orioles Bobblehead of the Week- Adam Jones
The Orioles honored him with a bobble on Wednesday June 17, 2009 on the night of an inter-league game against the Mets. It's a pretty cool design; I know that it's hard to tell from this picture but his feet aren't on the ground. His body plugs into the back wall by a medal rod, attached around the small of his back, to picture him jumping to make a catch at the wall. The inclusion of the 410 distance marker is nice too. Conceptually, it's a pretty cool design for the O's.
I have to admit that Adam can make some amazing catches in centerfield. His "trademark" seems to be blowing a bubble during the play, as paid homage to on the bobble. While the picture the O's used on the box is an impressive shot, I feel like finding one of him making a catch while blowing a bubble wouldn't have been too much to ask for. He does it about once a series, so there should be some photographic evidence of it!
