Chipper Jones Number Retirement

Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones during a ceremony retiring his number at Turner Field.On Friday, The Ted was sold out, but it wasn’t because fans came only to see the Braves take on the Diamondbacks.┬áPeople packed into every possible crevasse (and then some)┬áto see their beloved Chipper step on the grass for perhaps the last time. Chipper, who played all of his 19 MLB seasons with the Braves, retired from the game last year, and they retired his famous No. 10 during a pre-game ceremony.
