Chipper Jones Says Final Trips Around Major Leagues Are 'Awe-Inspiring' (Video)

Chipper Jones isn't letting go of baseball without taking a few pieces of the big leagues with him.

When Chipper Jones arrived in earnest at the major league level in 1995, the Arizona Diamondbacks did not yet exist. In fact, Arizona had just been awarded a yet-to-be-named expansion franchise, and Chase Field (formerly Bank One Ballpark) would not open for another three years. Yet when Jones and the Atlanta Braves came to Phoenix in April, the third baseman got a standing ovation...

Video study helps Hinske snap slump

One of my tweets was read on Braves Live!

This was very cool. Thanks to @Fireflies712 for making a video of it (while I just took a bootleg picture of the TV with my phone, haha)! Thanks, FSS!
