Adam Jones is very good at baseball, which requires a tremendous amount of athletic skill, so it really should not be surprising that he can easily pull off a feat requiring speed, strength and coordination. But the distance he kicks this piece of gum after spitting it out is very impressive.

Jones was angrily running out a pop fly when he spit out his gum and punted it into the outfield, in all in one deft maneuver.

The Baltimore outfielder would have rather gotten a hit of course, but lots of people have gotten hits in baseball games before. How many of them have drop kicked a piece of Dubble Bubble to the moon?
