Adam Jones has outstanding feelings on fans who run onto field

Two morons ran onto the field in Yankee Stadium Tuesday afternoon while the Orioles were beating the Yankees. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, as is usually the case with him, didn't hold back in discussing the situation in post-game interviews.

I fully support this.

I fully support this, too.

The field is the domain of the player. They have no way of knowing the intent of any idiot fan who rushes the field and there have been incidents in the past where fans attacked on-field personnel. So, please, if you attend a game, just stay in the freaking stands.

Also, Jones continues to be one of the best personalities in baseball. He's one of the best interviews, always has fun, always speaks his mind and is incredibly fan friendly. I once witnessed him spend all of All-Star Game batting practice trying to get a baseball to as many different kids in the stands as humanly possible (of note, his control at throwing a ball to a kid 100-plus feet away, while making it easy to catch, was amazing). You can also pretty easily find backstories of him doing very nice things for fans, like this one. Just not for the morons who run onto the field.

Keep it up, Adam.

Adam Jones homered Tuesday before being annoyed by two fans who ran onto the field.
