Adam Jones and his dance moves know when he makes a good catch

Adam Jones knows an impressive play when he sees one, and he's always willing to recognize -- always, whether it's an impressive Mike Trout throw, or his very own leaping catch at the outfield wall.

That's a dance that says, unequivocally, "Yeah, I made a great catch and yeah, I know it."

See, that's why you have to celebrate the good ones when you have a chance.
