Found May 05, 2012 on Outside the Boxscore:
PLAYERS: John Smoltz
TEAMS: Atlanta Braves

I'll be honest, the odds that a video of former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz crashing a go-kart would exist were pretty low until the below clip came to life.

Smoltz was filming a segment for CBS new sports show called "The Players Club" and tried his hand at go-kart racing.

Then, Smoltz while attempting to make a turn crashed into the barrier of the track:

Chipper Jones: The Most Accurate Hitter??? (Video)

With career numbers of .304/.402/.533, Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves, is surely one of MLB’s greatest hitters of all-time. Now Chipper makes a bid to be the most accurate hitter of all time. Check out this MLB.com video…Huh???  

Chipper Jones goes off on Jamie Moyer after accusation of stealing signs

The Braves overcame a six-run deficit on Saturday to beat the Rockies, 13-9, thanks largely to a five-RBI game by Chipper Jones. But Jamie Moyer provided some added drama to the contest when he accused Jones of relaying signs to batters at home plate. Jones took exception to Moyer’s allegations, as both players were seen exchanging choice words during the fifth inning. “That...

Jones drives in 5 in Braves' win over Rockies

DENVER (AP) -- Playing from behind in recent games seems to have fueled the Atlanta Braves offense. Chipper Jones helped the Braves rally once again, matching a career high with five RBIs on three hits, and the Braves overcame a grand slam by Michael Cuddyer to beat the Colorado Rockies 13-9 Saturday night. Matt Diaz and Jason Heyward also hit back-to-back solo home runs in the...

Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Phillies 5-2-12

Eleven innings. This game may be in my top five most exciting/insane Braves games I've attended in this century. (Others on the list, not in order, are Ubaldo's no-hitter against us, Smoltz breaking the NL saves record, last year's 19-inning marathon, Heyward's first game.) When we heard Hanson was going up against Halladay, I think we all expected a 3-2 final score...

Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Phillies 5-1-12

"How's that massage, man?" My friend Kolbi IMed me when she was planning this game: "i was tryin to figure out which were the embarrassing seats -- was it the tuesday we went?" See, she thinks it's funny to sit on the same level and immediately next to the bullpen bench. I think it's uncomfortable. HI BOYS. WE ARE HERE TO WATCH YOU PLAY BASEBALL....

Chipper Jones Denies Moyer’s Sign Stealing Accusations

Two of the oldest players in Major League Baseball are currently in the middle of a fight, and it would probably be pretty funny if the accusations being thrown around weren’t so serious. Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer has accused Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones of stealing signs. And Jones isn’t exactly taking that insult in stride. On Saturday the 40-year...
