ATLANTA -

Friday was a big day for former Braves third baseman Chipper Jones.  He was inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame this afternoon, and the team retired his No. 10 jersey at Turner Field before their game.

In his 19-year career with the Braves, Jones won a World Series, named the 1999 NL MVP and was an 8-time All-Star.

Jones, sporting a gray suit and a red tie, addressed the crowd at a packed Turner Field and then threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Chipper's big day got started with an alumni luncheon, and FOX 5 Sports' Ken Rodriguez was there alongside our own former Brave, Ron Gant! K-Rod also had the chance to talk with Chipper before his big moment at the Braves game.
