Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God

Little did I know at the tender age of 13 -- the year I fell madly in love with Chipper Jones' switch-hitting swing -- I would be lucky enough to see him earn his first batting title, 14 years later.


After walking on a pinch hit in his only at-bat against the Houston Astros on Sunday, Chipper nabbed the National League batting title, edging St. Louis Cardinals’ slugger Albert Pujols.

Again. Hot.

The Atlanta Braves third baseman finished the 2008 season batting .364, marking the highest average for an NL batting champion since hit .370 in 2002.

As the oldest switch-hitting batting champ in the history of ever, Jones hit 22 bombs and drove in 75 runs after missing 14 games between July and August with a strained left hamstring, in addition to being out of the starting lineup since September 21st with right shoulder inflammation.

Inflammation is hot. And so is Chipper Jones.

And Mauer pretty much has the AL title wrapped up, which I'm sure you're just awaiting official word to write about it.
