Chipper Jones is so Awesome at Baseball


Sigh.

Chipper Jones smoked career home run #400 on a 4-for-5 night Friday against the Florida Marlins, aiding his Atlanta Braves in a 7-5 victory and spiking his big league-best batting average from .409 to an even more incredible .418 with his 14th home run and 39th RBI of the season.

Chasing Ted Williams' illustrious 1941 season, Jones became just the third switch-hitter in history to reach the milestone, joining Hall of Famers (536) and Eddie Murray (504).

Chipper!!!
Thanks all the way from the ATL where I was there to see on my B-day of all days.
And he's the leading vote getter at 3B, hitting .400+....Chipper's my hero.

Thanks for the shouting out for CJ
