BALTIMORE, MD – SEPTEMBER 03: Adam Jones #10 of the Baltimore Orioles hits starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez #50 in the face with a pie following the Orioles 6-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on September 3, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)

In a huge blow to pie enthusiasts around the Baltimore area, the Baltimore Orioles have banned pie-in-the-face celebrations, apparently due to safety concerns.

Outfielder Adam Jones, a former recipient of getting pied-in-the-face took to Twitter to share the devastating news. Judging by the number of emoji’s he used, he’s particularly broken up about the news.

Pies can be dangerous. When Oakland Athletics outfielder Chris Coghlan was playing with the Miami Marlins, he tried to hurl a pie into the face of teammate Wes Helms and inadvertently tore the meniscus in his left knee. The Orioles don’t want the same thing to happen to their players.

Don’t worry Orioles fans, because Jones is already working on alternatives to the pie move. He asked his Twitter followers for some suggestions, and spitballed the idea of swirlies and pantsing his fellow players – something I’m sure the MLBPA wouldn’t approve.

The Orioles didn’t have a vendetta solely against pies, as the Baltimore Sun reports they organization has also banned solowheels and hoverboards. If you’re hoping to see your favorite Orioles player get pied in the face, while riding a goofy looking electronic scooter, today was a very dark day.
