Adam Jones

Before he dives for balls in center field this spring, Orioles Center Fielder Adam Jones joined the push to get people to sign for health insurance.

The gold glover was enlisted by Health Care for All as part of a campaign to push people to get covered before open enrollment in the state-run exchange ends on Feb. 15. He lent his voice to a new radio ad, and showed up at a press conference Friday afternoon.

“I am proud to have a role in helping Marylanders find out what health benefits are available to them,” the four-time all-star said. “It is important and our message is simple: Call 211 or go to to learn more about your health benefit options.”
