For 23 years, Chipper Jones has been a professional baseball player. But, sadly for Braves fans, there will not be a 24th.
On March 22, the Atlanta Braves third baseman announced that the end of the 2012 season would mean the end of his career. Jones was the first round draft pick by the Braves in 1990 before he began his Major League career at Atlanta in 1995. In the years since then, Jones has not played a day for another organization. Understandably, he says one of the things he will miss the most will be his 23-year home: Turner Field.
