Adam Jones is not shy about making song requests. The Top 40s playlist during Team USA's batting practice Monday afternoon was not necessarily to Jones' liking, so he gave his opinion from behind the batting cage. "Some hip-hop … please!" Jones shouted, a request that easily was heard all the way in the press box. Moments later Rihanna's "Pour It Up" poured from the Dodger Stadium speakers. Jones, who has two home runs and a game-saving catch in this WBC, continues to make things happen.
