Braves Vs. Reds: Cincinnati To Honor Chipper Jones With Commemorative Bases

The Chipper Jones retirement tour will stop off at Cincinnati on Monday night and greeting him there will be commemorative bases acknowledging his career.

The bases say "Celebrating the career of #10 Chipper Jones." You can view them here.

Jones, though, might not even play against the Reds. He has missed the last two games with a bruised left calf, and the Braves are hoping he can play in this week's series.

The Reds are one of the few teams that Jones has not done significant damage to during his career. In 55 career games, he has a .259 batting average and eight home runs against Cincinnati.

Jones is 0-for-4 in his career against Mike Leake, who starts Monday for the Reds.
