Ex-Rockies Draftee Aaron Jones Quits Baseball

Back in June, the Colorado Rockies drafted Oregon Ducks catcher/outfielder Aaron Jones in the 18th round. As a draft-eligible sophomore, Jones had leverage in negotiating with the Rockies. However, Jones neither wanted to play for the Rockies or return to Oregon.

Instead, Jones will leave school to become a firefighter, according to the Register-Guard.

All the best to Jones.
