VIDEO: Chipper Jones' Retirement Press Conference Held At Spring Training

Long-time Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones announced his retirement in a press conference on Thursday, and thanks to the fellas at Talking Chop, SB Nation's Atlanta Braves blog, we have video. Enjoy.

Skip ahead to the 1:15 mark to get to the best part of the video.

In 18 years with the Braves, Jones has a 2,615 hits, 1,561 runs, 454 home runs and a .304 lifetime batting average. He was the National League batting champion in 2008, was the NL MVP in 1999, was a two time Silver Slugger Award Winner, was a seven-time All Star and helped the Braves win the World Series in 1995, the same year he was named the Sporting Goods Rookie of the Year. He looks to have all the makings of a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
