Former Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones took to the streets of Japan to peacefully protest the killing of George Floyd. 

"Hard to not be in the USA while this is going on but we're trying to do our part here in Japan!" Jones said via his Instagram Sunday.

"Great to be with and around people who understand their voices and standing up against racism is powerful and appreciated!"

Jones now resides in Japan as a member of the Orix Buffaloes after spending 11 successful seasons in Charm City. 

"It's always gonna hold a special part to me, but at the same time, I'm never going to forget the business side of things," Jones said while reflecting on his time in Baltimore back in May.
