PrintMore EXTRA MUSTARD Adam Jones, Orioles to end post-game pie celebrations

Pies in the face are the 3rd leading killer among men aged 18-34. Spread awareness!

Adam Jones and the Baltimore Orioles will no longer celebrate walk-off victories with a pie in the face due to safety reasons, the star outfielder announced.

For the last few seasons, Jones would surprise players by pieing them in the face as they conducted post-game television interviews.

Jones shared his disappointment with the decision but looked to find a way to continue his partnership with a local bakery.
