Chipper Jones is no doubt, one of the best baseball players to live. He has earned his rank as one of the top 50 hitters of all time which is incredible. Chipper has been with his one and only team the Braves since 1993 making his time in the major leagues, 19 years. It is incredible how far he has come since his rookie years. This year at spring training Chipper announced his retirement which we all knew had to happen sometime even though no one wanted to admit it. Even Chipper knew this day would come but his love for the game wouldn't let him think about it. Chipper has been the heart and soul of this team along with Bobby Cox who retired just last year. Though his leaving will make an impact the Braves will try to have the same spirit as they do year in and year out. Sending Chipper off with a world series appearance would be incredible and the Braves are trying to do that this year. Let's all rally behind the Braves as they make a run for the world series. The future hall of famer, Chipper Jones, deserves nothing less because of all he has given this town and this team.
