Baltimore Orioles: Top Ten Home Run Hitters In Franchise History
5. Adam Jones– 263 home runs
The result of another unbelievable trade in Orioles history, Jones came to Baltimore from the Seattle Mariners, along with Chris Tillman and others, in exchange for Erik Bedard in the winter of 2008.
Jones took over in center field at the age of 22 and roamed the outfield of Camden Yards for the next 11 seasons, compiling 263 home runs, five All-Star nods, four Gold Glove Awards, and a Silver Slugger award during that time span.
His contributions to the local Baltimore community and his memorable play on the field will keep Jones fresh in the minds of Orioles fans for a long time, despite his departure to Arizona before the 2019 season.
Jones hit 25 or more home runs in all but three seasons while with the O’s, launching a career-high 33 in 2013. At the time of this writing, he is just 18 home runs away from 300 in his career.
