    Adam Jones to stop pieing players in Orioles celebrations

    Bye-bye, Oriole pie.

    Over the last several years, the Baltimore Orioles often celebrated victories with center fielder Adam Jones smashing a pie in the hero's face. Among the teammates he tagged, in fact, was Felix Pie.

    But the team has decided to end the practice for safety reasons.

    The ritual became so ingrained that Jones arranged with a local bakery to furnish the pies. Not all players were fond of Jones' antics, which generally came when an Orioles player was being interviewed on television.

    Jones tweeted the news Saturday.

    "It's no one's fault. It's just about safety. At the end of the day it can be dangerous so we're being smart," Jones wrote.

    One of the best things about witnessing a win live, many of us would congregate on the home side to watch. I'm going to miss it.
