BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Two local sports legends met Saturday to make an epic trade.

Three months later, Wiseman got the ball signed and put his John Hancock on a bowling ball for Jones.

Jones, 32, is in the final year of his six-year, $85.5 million contract.

The 32-year-old outfielder has hit 10 home runs and is batting .288.

Wiseman, a Maryland native, was selected as part of the 2018 United States Bowling Congress Hall of Fame class in April.

Wiseman has won more than $1.5 million dollars in his PBA career and has thrown 43 perfect 300 games in PBA competition.
