Chipper Jones has done it all in his career with the Braves. He's won a World Series, claimed a National League MVP trophy, has played in every ballpark, should be a first ballot hall of famer, etc. etc. We could go on about our wonderful third baseman all day long.
On Sunday against the Phillies, Chipper Jones moved into second place in a pretty impressive category with a deep homer off Roy Halladay. We'll investigate after the jump.

Not too bad for a day's work.
For all Chipper has accomplished over the years, his production at the age of 40 is just absolutely unreal. He's been the Braves' best and most consistent player all season long; when was the last time any team could say that about a man who's been in baseball for nearly two decades?
