Adam Jones Stays Hungry, Humble Going Into 2016

Orioles All-Star center fielder Adam Jones joined the Hot Stove Show to discuss the upcoming 2016 season, the confidence he has in the team and having dinner with the Angelos family.

Adam Jones now a 30-years-old veteran in the league and he says, "It's eerie. Time has flown. You have to relish every moment, take advantage of the opportunities that's given, and really enjoy what you're doing because at the end of the day I remember my very first spring trainig and now it's my thirteenth spring training."

Adam Jones is very comfortable with being the face of the Orioles but says, "The cool thing is we have a lot of guys who can fill that role. I'm just one of the guys trying to bring a championship to Baltimore." He continues to give shout-outs and accolades to fellow teammates like Davis, Machado, Wieters, Tillman, O'Day and more that are fully capable of being a leader.

Jim Hunter admired Jones' confidence and leadership on and off the field, to which Adam attributed that to a great organization. "What has made this team and this organization strong is that we have a backbone, and not just on the field but off the field. The players care and I know 100% that this team cares."
