Adam Jones and Danny Jansen are getting their own dual Minor League bobblehead
Adam Jones has been one of the best folks in baseball for a long time. He's funny, awesome with fans, a legend in Baltimore and has worn some incredible Cookie Monster shoes. And this past season, an insanely serendipitous story featuring Jones and Blue Jays rookie catcher Danny Jansen only added to the lore of baseball's happiest, bubble-blowing-est dude.

When Jones was coming up through the Minor Leagues with the Mariners, he found himself in Appleton, Wisc., as a member of the Class A Timber Rattlers. Many farm teams set their players up with host families, and it just so happens that Jansen and his family hosted Jones during the young outfielder's time in town. Fast forward 14 years and Jones and Jansen are in the big leagues together -- Jansen even lined out to Jones in one of his first games last season.
And now, thanks to the wonderful geniuses at the Timber Rattlers, the two are getting their own dual bobblehead. On Sunday, June 23, the team will be giving out bobbleheads modeled on that incredible picture Jones tweeted. If you live anywhere near Appleton, this giveaway is a must-get, easily one of the most wonderful and heartwarming bobbleheads in recent memory.
