The Chipper Jones farewell tour is in full swing, with pretty much every town that the Braves third baseman is visiting for the final time honoring him in some way, be it with a video package, gifts from the team, or a combination of both. The Cincinnati Reds are going in a different direction this week, and it's one of the more unique tributes to Jones that we've seen so far.

The Reds will be putting a jewel on the side of all of the bases for this week's series commemorating the career of Jones. Once the series ends, one of the bases will be given to Jones, one will be given to the Braves Hall of Fame, and one will remain in the Reds Hall of Fame.

This is a very cool thing that the Reds are doing, and is another great move from a classy, storied franchise. Hats off to Walt Jocketty and the rest of the Cincinnati front office and management.
