Orioles outfielder Adam Jones and Red Sox DH David Ortiz made a friendly wager on Saturday night’s divisional playoff game between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots. Jones sent the challenge to Ortiz on Twitter, suggesting the loser make a $5,000 donation to the winner’s charity and wear the jersey of a player on the winning team. If Jones lost, he would wear a Tom Brady jersey; if Ortiz lost, he would wear a Terrell Suggs jersey.

Ortiz was pretty pumped up during the game, tweeting:

The Patriots outlasted the Ravens, winning by a narrow 35-31 margin. They await the winner of Sunday’s game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship game.

Jones lived up to his end of the bargain. He’ll be making a donation to David Ortiz’s Children’s Fund.

Kudos to both players for using a fun night of football as an opportunity to help out a charity. You can learn more about the David Ortiz Children’s Fund by visiting their website. Jones has worked with the Y of Central Maryland, which you can learn more about here. Jones has also done projects with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore.
