The Cincinnati Reds will honor Chipper Jones with special bases at the Great American Ball Park during their 4-game set against the Atlanta Braves this week. The bases are emblazoned with a plaque reading, “Celebrating the Career of #10 Chipper Jones” bearing both the Reds & Braves team logos. I’m impressed to see a team honor an opposing player in this way, but it’s no surprise as Chipper Jones is sure to be a 1st ballot Hall of Fame inductee. 2 weeks ago, the Chicago Cubs gave Chipper the Atlanta Braves flag that was flying at Wrigley Field during his last visit to the Friendly Confines as an MLB player.
