Does anyone know if/when Jones was drafted or which school he attended? - --Mischa 20:35, 5 November 2006 (EST)

Baseball Cube has a Gary Jones being drafted in 1981 by the Chicago White Sox out of Paris Junior College. Right time period and home state, wrong Chicago --Just me 20:40, 5 November 2006 (EST)

The Paris Junior College site lists their Gary Jones as playing in the majors with Oakland but that's incorrect. Gary W. Jones did play three years in AAA with Oakland. Maybe he spent some time on the Oakland bench and didn't play? If so, it's the same guy... - --Mischa 20:44, 5 November 2006 (EST)

This site seems to indicate that Jones was picked by the Cubs in 1982 out of U., of Arkansas after going to Paris Junior College and Henderson High School. Picked in 1981 by the ChiSox and unsigned perhaps? - --Mischa 20:46, 5 November 2006 (EST)

Baseball Cube (which we agree always needs double checking) doesn't have Gary Jones being drafted by the Cubs in '82. So.. assuming its all the same player ....... he was probably drafted out of JC in 1981, went to 4 yr college in 1982 and signed as a free agent. --Just me 20:56, 5 November 2006 (EST)

I found the original English of the MLB.com article and it says Chicago (Cubs) drafted him in 1982. Wikipedia says he signed as a free agent with Chicago in 1982. - --Mischa 20:58, 5 November 2006 (EST)

Pretty fine career. Too bad he never got a chance in the majors. - --Mischa 21:19, 5 November 2006 (EST)
