When I heard that Chipper Jones was retiring I was worried that he’d be subjected to the hackneyed “farewell tour” gifts every time he came to town.
And, well, I was right.
But, the Cincinnati Reds are doing it different. And this, well, this…I like.
According to The Outside Corner, the Reds will be putting a “jewel” on the side of all of the bases celebrating Jones’ career. And when the series is over, the Atlanta Braves superstar gets to take one home with him.
The other bases will end up in the Braves and Reds Halls of Fame.
There’s no word yet on what “The Girl with the Chipper Tattoo” is planning on doing.
