Throwback Thursday: Jones’ extreme rally cap

From keeping quiet about a no-hitter to sticking to a strict routine, baseball players can get wrapped up in superstitions.

With the Orioles down 2-0 against the Tigers, Adam Jones took one superstition to a whole other level.

After the Orioles mascot accidentally dropped his hat into the home dugout, Jones picked up the oversized cap, put it on and cheered on his teammates. That inning, the Birds scored three runs and would go on to win the game 4-2.

Was it Jones’ rally cap that gave the O’s an edge? We may never know, but thanks to the quick fashion show, we are left with this memorable moment from 2013.
