BALTIMORE - (MINS) Adam Jones is without a doubt the most popular, personable, and recognizable Baltimore Oriole. His positive attitude, intensely dedicated work ethic, and obvious club house leadership is hard not to notice. He's become a household name since joining the team in 2010. Even the most causal observer -- not even necessarily a baseball fan --  knows about him. Have you ever wondered what his career options could be after baseball?

Orioles manager Buck Showalter believes Jones could have a future in politics.

"I really believe he could run for mayor of Baltimore when he is done playing... Whether he's in a tuxedo at his wedding or in a duck blind, he knows how to communicate with all people," Buck Showalter said.

If Jones ran, he wouldn't be the first successful athlete to transition into politics. There  have been many. Some have excelled so far in the political arena, people have long forgotten they got their start in sports.

Current Mayor of Detroit and seven time All-Star guard for the Detroit Pistons basketball team, Dave Bing did it.

The comments on Jones were part of a recent in depth ESPN profile of the four time golden glove winner, playing center field for The Birds.

Jones has had no comment or reaction on this.

With city mayoral elections just a year away, it's intriguing to think of a popular non politician, entering the fray and walking away with it all.

Last week we shared with you a  fascinating snippet from ABC2 In Focus on Sheila Dixon and the possibility of her going back into politics, and running for her old job as Mayor Of Baltimore.

What are your thoughts?

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
