Braves to honor Chipper Jones on Friday

The Atlanta Braves will honor one of their all-time greats Friday as they induct Chipper Jones into the team’s hall of fame.

The Braves will celebrate Jones’ career and retire his number with a ceremony prior to the game. A pregame show at 6:30 p.m. will be followed by the ceremony at 7 p.m., both on Fox Sports South.

Jones’ No. 10 will be the 10th number retired by the Braves. Earlier in the day, the Braves will induct Jones into the team’s hall of fame during a luncheon in downtown Atlanta.
