Chipper Jones is a former third baseman who spent his entire 19-year MLB career playing for the Atlanta Braves and all 23 years as a professional baseball player in the Braves organization, after being the first overall pick of the club in the 1990 MLB Draft. Chipper is an 8x All-Star, the 1999 National League MVP and the 2008 National League batting champion.

When his career was finished, Chipper had amassed the most RBIs in the history of baseball for a third baseman, and he stands as the only switch hitter in the history of baseball to finish his career with a .300 average, .400 on base percentage and .500 slugging percentage, all while hitting 468 HRs. He retired in 2012, and after being raised in Pierson, Florida, and attending high school at the Bolles School in Jacksonville, he now lives in Atlanta with his wife and family. He is the proud father to seven sons.
