While the Atlanta Braves of the 1990’s and early 2000’ will always (and should be) known primarily for the elite starting pitching, Chipper Jones had the perfect path to greatness from number one draft pick in 1990 to first ballot Hall of Fame inductee in 2018.

Jones was an Atlanta Brave during his entire career winning the World Series in his rookie season (1995).  The loaded organization was expected to win more championships and though they did not it wasn’t for lack of effort from the Third Baseman who proved to be one of the most consistent players in the game for years.  Jones would belt 468 Home Runs over his career with five 30 Home Run seasons and nine 100 RBI seasons with 1,623 in total.  He also hit for average winning the Batting Title in 2008 with .364 with nine .300 seasons and a career Slash Line of .303/.401/.529 with 2,726 Hits.

Along with that consistency the eight time All Star finished six times in the top ten in National League MVP voting.  This included winning the coveted award in 1999. 

Without question Chipper Jones is the best position player the Braves have had in the past thirty years.
