Tonight marks the first game of the final homestand of Chipper Jones’ career. How appropriate it is against the NY Mets.
I know I have been hard on Chipper on this blog. I think it is deserved.
But that doesn’t take away from the amazing career he has had in Atlanta. Except for Henry Aaron, there is no one better who has put on an Atlanta Braves uniform than Larry Wayne Jones, Jr. He has literally carried the team on his back all season long. He could have called i tquits after tearing ACL in Houston in 2010. He came back, and is going out on his own terms.
Whatever accolades the Braves bestow upon him will be well deserved.
