If you are disappointed in the way the Baltimore Orioles offseason has been going, Adam Jones is there to cheer you up.

The face of the Baltimore Orioles franchise is active on Twitter and should be a part of your feed.  He goes by 10 (@SimplyAJ10).

Jones engages with fans, fellow MLB players, and the community. He does it with style, humor, and appreciation for life.

His posts offer a glimpse into the life of a Major League baseball player but in a slightly different way. On most MLB players’ Twitter accounts, they share videos of their workouts and an occasional retweet of a statistic or official image.

Jones differentiates himself by sharing Tweets about social issues and local charities. His Twitter account is filled with candid photos with fans, thank you messages to friends and fans, and hilarious memes that show his spirit. His Twitter provides a pleasant glimpse into the man who has roamed center field in Camden Yards for the last decade.

Something else that separates Adam Jones from the rest of the MLB Twittersphere is the fact that he shares information about books. In the last few months, he has shared two books written by his friends. One is from Aaron Maybin, the former NFL player who is now a teacher in Baltimore. The other was Jason Romano from ESPN. Whether Jones has actually read the books or not, it is remarkable that a professional athlete takes the time to promote reading.

He also takes time to support his fellow MLB players on all teams. When David Price was promoting his charity golf event, Jones retweeted it. When the Houston Astros shared photos of teammates doing community service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Jones retweeted it.

Jones also takes time to celebrate small accomplishments to bring awareness to his community of followers. One notable Tweet that Jones shared was about a high school boy who did not have shoes that fit him. His classmates chipped in and bought him new shoes.

It is clear that Jones understands his impact on Baltimore Orioles fans and on the world at large. Especially when he sends out messages like this:

Jones is certainly an asset to the online community and to the Orioles fan base.

Next: Happy Birthday to Tim Beckham

Hopefully, he will continue to be the face of the Orioles for many more years to come. And, if you aren’t following him Twitter, the time to do so is now. He will make your Twitter feed thoroughly enjoyable.
