Chipper Jones may be in his last season with the Atlanta
Braves, but the 18-year veteran third baseman is still a rookie at heart.
Baseball, like most professional sports, has a tradition of rookie
hazing — but it rarely happens to the oldest person on the team.
Apparently Jones, 40, didn't get the memo. The eight-time All-Star decided to join the Braves' rookies in their
hazing routine this week. (It could be worse
— he could be wearing a leotard.)
Jones, who has said he will retire at the end of this season, is trying
to get everything he can out of his last weeks with Atlanta. Who can blame
him — the franchise got nothing but the best from him for 18 great seasons.
