Odds and Ends for November 1

Lots of stuff to catch up on today.

Congratulations to former Timber Rattlers shortstop Adam Jones.   The Orioles centerfielder won an American League Gold Glove.

Jones, 27, who was voted Most Valuable Oriole for the second straight year, capped his best major league season with his second Gold Glove. He was the only AL center fielder to play in all 162 games and led them in putouts (439), marking the second time in three years he was the league leader in putouts at his position. He also ranked second in range factor per game (2.75) and third in assists (seven) among AL center fielders.

Jones also inspired – by way of jersey selection – Maryland’s own Greg Merson to win the Main Event of the World Series of Poker!

This is from Tuesday night. He wore the orange Adam Jones jersey on Monday. You could see the number 10 on the front of the orange jersey, but this picture is much cooler. Trust me. He’s wearing #10.

A 24-year-old Maryland poker professional won the World Series of Poker main event Wednesday, outlasting his final opponents in a marathon card session of nearly 12 hours for the $8.53 million title.

Greg Merson emerged with the title before dawn in Las Vegas after a session that proved to be a showcase for his skills amid the unpredictability of tournament no-limit Texas Hold ‘em. On the last hand, Merson put Las Vegas card pro Jesse Sylvia all-in with a king high. Sylvia thought hard, then called with a suited queen-jack.

You can see the “Jones”  and #10 on the back of the jersey at about 7:58 of this video clip from the broadcast.

Speaking of videos:

Here are a few pictures from next week’s episode:

Bathrooms are being renovated, too.

Work has begun on the home team clubhouse, too.

Have you seen the video of Jim Irwin conducting an interview at Goodland Field from the year 1968? You should.

The Timber Rattlers have opened a merchandise kiosk at Fox River Mall.  It is located on the main corridor just past Northwoods Cafe food court.

PSSSSST!!!! It's by the Sunglass Hut!

New Fox River Mall Kiosk.

The Food Court is close. Very close.
