Bleacher Report / Adam Jones WWE Entrance

With both events happening in the span of two days, Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones might be as hyped as he's ever been. After all, he is "the heavyweight champion of Major League Baseball." The Orioles don't play Sunday, which gives Jones the opportunity to watch WrestleMania 32. That'll be the perfect way to wrap up the offseason ahead of Baltimore's first game Monday, which is at home against the Minnesota Twins. Jet Direction was tasked to do something that was entirely left field. Forgo DragonFrame and stop-motion animation and pick up a Red Dragon and film the most epic walk-up in Major League Baseball History. Ames, came up with the concept, sketched the storyboards, became the producer to bring the crew together, and edited to completion. The video was an instant success with the fans of the MLB, Orioles and WWE alike. Combining all the favs into one mix. With over a million views throughout various social platforms, it’s hard to ignore why.
