ATLANTA - Chipper Jones was officially elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame Wednesday night
In all honesty, there was never a doubt if Chipper would make it. The question was, "How close will he get to 100 percent?"
The Atlanta Braves’ top pick in 1990 retired in 2012 as one of baseball’s best switch-hitters.
Jones, who finished with 2,724 hits and 468 homers, hit above .300 from both sides of the plate.
In nearly 11,000 plate appearances, Jones compiled more walks (1,512) than strikeouts (1,409) and remains one of just three players who primarily played third base to drive in more than 1,500 runs.
