Braves third baseman Chipper Jones to retire

Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones announced Thursday he was retiring at the end of the 2012 season.

Shortly thereafter, came the news Chipper had once again injured his knee and will need to have his sixth surgery before the start of the year. He could miss up to a month of the season.

While it’s almost unimaginable to picture the Atlanta Braves without their franchise face, Chipper made the right decision. He’s going out on his terms and he’s honoring his legacy in doing so.

I paid homage to the future Hall of Famer in a column for arizonasports.com Friday. Enjoy my tribute to the exceptionally gifted and talented Chipper Jones, a lifelong Brave who transcended his era and left an indelible mark on the game of baseball.
