Adam Jones at the ESPN Zone: Thursday, April 17th

The newest Oriole and perhaps superstar-in-the-making, Adam Jones, held a Q&A & autopgraph session at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore's Inner Harbor on Thursday.

There was a good sized crowd in the facility as Adam Jones took questions from fans about the Orioles, his short time in the majors and also off the field items, such as things that he does in free time, as well also a few questions on --- dating (yes, he's single, "but, he says he's working on it").

In the past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to catch the young fellow on the radio and also on TV and fans saw the side of Adam that has been by the public - a focused young man who knows the game, as well being funny and very engaging.

It's hard to forget he's only 22 -- hell, at Jones' age, I was still taking classes and knew absolutely nothing about the world. However, just by hearing him speak and interact with the crowd -- he's at ease and he knows who he is and where he wants to be within the game of baseball.

All in all, he is extremely likable, and very personable. I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised with his demeanor and the way he handled himself.

I walked away very impressed with him, and almost to the point where you felt like you knew him.

Considering the new talent on the team, and the overturned roster, someone like Adam Jones will no doubt grow on Oriole fans.

The Q&A portion went on for about 15-20 minutes, and fans who were able to play hooky from work or visit the ESPN Zone during their lunch hour got to get their memorabilia signed and get some face time with Adam.
