Orioles’ Jones to play for Team USA in World Baseball Classic

Posted on 11 January 2013 by WNST Staff

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones has accepted the opportunity to play for the United State in the World Baseball Classic in March.

It is unknown how many other Orioles players might play in the tournament, but closer Jim Johnson turned down an invitation to play for Team USA earlier this winter.

Jones confirmed the news via his official Twitter account on Friday afternoon.

“Yep it’s official. Get to play for #TeamUSA. Couldn’t be prouder to play for my country #WBC #StayHungry IM AN AMERICAN,” the 27-year-old wrote.
