Chipper Jones may not have played in Game 3 of the NLDS between the Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves on Monday, but the Hall of Famer still committed a brutal error.

Jones had a seat near the Braves dugout at Truist Park, and he had a chance to catch a routine pop foul in the top of the second inning. The former slugger was unable to make the play, resulting in a long stare from Braves catcher Travis d’Arnaud. Here’s the embarrassing video:

It’s unclear if Jones lost the ball in the sun, but that’s a play the 1999 National League MVP could have made with his eyes closed in his heyday.

Jones actually made a nice catch on a foul ball during a Braves playoff game two years ago (video here). Unfortunately, we have to mark him down for an error for Monday’s blunder.
