Adam Jones of Baltimore Orioles reunites with Danny Jansen of Toronto Blue Jays years after living with family

Orioles outfielder Adam Jones and Blue Jays rookie catcher Danny Jansen are 10 years apart in age, 13 years apart in MLB service time and aren't related, yet Monday's game in Toronto was a reunion of sorts for the two.

In the early part of his professional baseball career, Jones played for the Class A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and lived with an area family. One member of that family was a then-9-year-old Jansen.

Jansen is batting .381 since being called up by the Blue Jays on Aug. 12, but hadn't faced off against Jones' Orioles until Monday.

While Jansen notched a double in the Jays' 5-3 win, Jones has some bragging rights against the rookie as Jansen twice flew out to the veteran outfielder.
