Friday night in San Diego, Adam Jones began his new career in hockey. The Baltimore Orioles’ five-time all-star signed a one-day contract with the San Diego Gulls and served as a penalty box attendant.
Jones — wearing a suit and a blue and orange tie — kept track of and recorded all penalties, opened and closed the penalty box doors allowing players to enter and exit, and provided referees with official game pucks (and of course Gatorade when they were thirsty).
“This is a life long mission of mine,” Jones said to MLB.com. “Might be an awesome retirement gig. Now that would be epic.”
Judging by the video below, it appears Jones was very successful.
