  • ATLANTA — Chipper Jones was greeted with a long ovation as the Atlanta Braves retired his No. 10 jersey Friday.
    Jones, the 1999 NL MVP and an eight-time All-Star, was honored before Atlanta's game against Arizona. The third baseman retired after last season's playoff loss to St. Louis having played his entire 19-year career in Atlanta.
    The Braves inducted Jones into their hall of fame during a luncheon Friday at a downtown hotel. Hank Aaron, baseball's No. 2 career leader in homers, spoke at the luncheon to congratulate Jones.
    Jones, the 2008 NL batting champion, ranks as the career leader among third basemen with 1,623 RBIs.
