SARASOTA, Fla. -- Bye-bye, Oriole pie.
But the team has decided to end the practice for safety reasons.
The ritual became so ingrained that Jones arranged with a local bakery to furnish the pies. Not all players were fond of Jones' antics, which generally came when an Orioles player was being interviewed on television.
Jones tweeted the news Saturday.
It's no ones fault. It's just about safety. At the end of the day it can be dangerous so we're being smart.

Baltimore players will try to come up with a less hazardous celebration.
