Chipper Jones Newsbeat

Friday, October 04, 2019

Some guy named Chipper Jones catches foul ball during Game 1 of Cardinals-Braves NLDS

Once upon a time, Chipper Jones catching a foul ball at an Atlanta Braves game wasn’t very noteworthy. The retired third baseman had to do that a lot during his career — even in the NLDS, in which the Braves played Game 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday.

However, Chipper Jones catching a foul ball in the year 2019, that’s just fun. The 47-year-old looks like he’s having fun.

....

That grin and those high fives came after the former MVP hauled in a foul ball from the bat of Cardinals outfielder Randy Arozarena in the top of the ninth inning of Game 1 between the Cardinals and Braves.

Jon Sciambi tells the hilarious story of the time he gave Chipper Jones hitting advice, and Jones stared up at the booth after it failed

Before Jon “Boog” Sciambi was a baseball play-by-play announcer for ESPN, he was the play-by-play voice of the Atlanta Braves on SportSouth and FSN South (from 2007-09).

And before a Braves-Padres game in San Diego in 2009, Sciambi spoke with Chipper Jones, Atlanta’s third baseman at the time. Jones was going through a bit of a slump at the plate, and Sciambi noticed that the star was swinging at the first pitch frequently, while not seeing many strikes while doing so. So, Sciambi pointed this tendency out to Jones, and asked Jones why he’s doing this. Jones explained that he thought it may be the only time he’d see a fastball in the at-bat, so he liked attacking the first pitch.

Strange- I assumed all Boogs would have good advice to offer involving batting….
