Cincinnati Reds To Honor Chipper Jones With Special Bases

This is how the Reds will honor the career of Chipper Jones this week.

The Cincinnati Reds will honor Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones this week, during Chipper's final series in Cincinnati, with special bases. The bases will feature a custom made "jewel" on both sides of the base that has the Reds and Braves logos, and will say "Celebrating the Career of #10 Chipper Jones."

After the series one of the game-used bases will be presented to Chipper, one to the Braves Hall of Fame, and the other will remain in the Reds Hall of Fame.

This is a classy thing for the Reds to do, a truly great honor for Chipper, and something I haven't heard of being done before. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the first time a player who is retiring will be honored on bases.

Fantastic stuff from the Reds, and continues more of the great acknowledgements from teams of the Hall of Fame career of Chipper Jones.

Chipper is a career .297/.384/.524 hitter against Cincinnati. He has appreciated the Great American Ballpark (.333/.400/.531) much more than he appreciated the old Cinergy Field (.216/.335/.396).
