BALTIMORE -- After making his triumphant return from a concussion on Tuesday night, going 3-for-4 with an RBI, second baseman Brian Roberts got a shaving cream pie in the face from Adam Jones and dozens of congratulatory messages and texts from friends and former teammates.
"I've spent half the day trying to get back to everyone," a smiling Roberts said. "I had so many people that have been part of this process with me, and they've all had a lot of great things to say."
Ex-Orioles Jay Gibbons and David Segui were among those who reached out.
"There were a lot of people in the baseball community," Roberts said. "I'm very appreciative."
