Buck Showalter has become quite a Ravens fan. He said he’d like to join Adam Jones in attending the AFC Championship Game in Foxboro, Mass., on Sunday.
“The best picture of the season was Jonesy screaming at Flacco,” Showalter said. “I’m blowing that up.”
When Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took the field in Denver, Jones was on the sidelines, encouraging him.
“I’m so proud of the meshing,” Showalter said. He likes seeing the Ravens wearing Orioles gear and his team supporting their football counterparts.
“I think it’s nothing but good. I’m thinking about wearing a Raven hat to FanFest.”
The Orioles announced that the Ravens cheerleaders and mascot would appear at Saturday’s event.
Last October, two days after the Orioles lost to the Yankees in the Divisional Series, Showalter was given a huge ovation when he served as the team’s honorary captain.
“They were cheering for the Orioles. They were cheering for our season, everything we accomplished as a group,” Showalter said. “It was pretty cool. It was chill bumps.”
