Adam Jones struck a pose after making this catch, probably invented a new baseball-themed dance

Anyone who's ever been to a wedding or a middle-school dance knows about the cultural phenomenon that is the instructions dance. It's a dance made for people who want to move around to music but have no interest in learning actual steps. All you have to do is listen to what the singer tells you.

Instructions dances can happen at any time. If you're at school, at work or in the middle of playing a baseball game, you must bow to the power of the dance.

At least, that's what I'm going to assume Adam Jones was doing in the fifth inning of Sunday's Orioles-Rangers game after he caught a line drive off the bat of Mitch Moreland. Obviously, Jones has just heard the "pose for the camera" part of Beyoncé's "Get Me Bodied."

Now he's supposed to do an old-school dance:

Perfect.
