Chipper Jones Is Undoubtedly A First Ballot Hall Of Famer

There are few players in baseball history who have achieved what Chipper Jones has achieved over the years with the Atlanta Braves. Not only do his career numbers speak for themselves -- the third baseman has upwards of 450 homers, 1,500 RBI and an OPS of .935 -- but the simple fact that he has lasted as a switch-hitter over all these years is amazing in itself.

Very few players are capable of being productive at one side of the plate at the Major League level. Jones did it from both sides, and he did it better than just about everyone else in the game.

It's only a matter of when Chipper is enshrined into the Hall of Fame. And as for the Braves, he will have his number retired right next to Bobby Cox's No. 6 in the coming years.
