It’s tough keeping up with the Jones

Chipper’s farewell tour leaves the Braves, MLB clamoring for more
“Every once in a while I go by and touch him just to be sure he’s not a hologram,” Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said about Chipper Jones before batting practice Friday. “He’s got this weird – well, maybe weird isn’t the right word – but he’s got this sense of the dramatic. Even his teammates are in awe.” Jones homered Friday, his third home run in two games.
Chipper Jones homered Thursday against San Diego for his 2,700th hit. On his farewell tour, the 40-year-old Jones is leading the team with a .317 average.
In his final year of Major League Baseball, the 40-year-old Chipper Jones is playing third base, leading the only team he’s ever played for with a .317 average and has 13 homers and 54 runs batted in.
“He’s just got that sweet stroke, real easy; everything looks smooth,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said of Chipper Jones. “He seems to come up big all the time.”
