Our baseball athlete Ross Jones was born January 14, 1960 in Miami Florida. He attended Miami University where he played college baseball.

Drafted in the first round of the 1980 MLB baseball draft by the Dodgers, Jones had a career full of transactions. In 1983, he was traded to the Mets who then released him in 1986. He then signed as a free agent with the Seattle Mariners who traded him to the Kansas City Royals for a minor leaguer Ricky Rojas. Then in 1987, Jones signed as a free agent with the Oakland Athletics where he finished his career.

His first two years in MLB baseball, Jones had only three hits. In 1987, he had nearly ten times that number-29. He holds a career batting average of .221. A right handed thrower, he started 36 games as a shortstop for the Royals and played second base for three games.

    As you can see I am Ross Jones. I am currently 59 years old and live in Australia. I am fiddling with web dev and web design as a hobby and was looking at possible domain names I came across your site.
    As I am another Ross Jones I thought I would drop a message to you just to say hi.
