BALTIMORE (WJZ) — For the second year in a row, O’s center-fielder Adam Jones is named the team’s most valuable player.

Jones will be honored at Camden Yards Sunday, before the Birds wrap up a three game series with the Boston Red Sox.

The two-time All-Star set a number of new career highs this season–including most games played (158), home runs (32), and doubles (39). With one more double, Jones will become the fifth Oriole in club history to have a 40 double/30 home run season. He is also the first player in 40 years to hit three game-winning home runs in the 12th inning or later.

Jones’ accomplishments off the field aren’t going unnoticed either. On Friday, he was given a key to the city for his outstanding community service.
