Adam Jones to start in All-Star game

Adam Jones

Adam Jones will be starting in the All-Star game for a third-consecutive year this year. Though Jones was not voted as a starter, he will replace injured Royals outfielder Alex Gordon in the starting lineup. Jones finished seventh in American League voting.

Gordon suffered a groin injury on Wednesday night. Jones automatically fills in since he was the top vote getter who was not selected to start. Ned Yost added Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner to the roster. He was on the Final Vote ballot.

Jones has been one of the two truly consistent threats in the Orioles lineup. He is batting .284/.330/.471 with 11 home runs, 40 RBIs and 15 doubles. Jones is also one of the best defensive centerfielders in the game, currently with a .995 fielding percentage.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
