Description

Chipper Jones spent his entire 19 year MLB career playing for the Atlanta Braves and all 23 years as a professional baseball player in the Braves organization. He is an eight-time All-Star and the 1999 National League MVP. Retired in 2012, Chipper remains one of the greatest switch-hitters in baseball history. In Ballplayer, he shares his remarkable story, while capturing the magic nostalgia that sets baseball apart from every other sport.

Gwinnett County Public Library will host retired Braves player Chipper Jones on Saturday, April 8 at 5:00pm at Coolray Field, 2500 Buford Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30043.
