Braves third baseman Chipper Jones says this will
be his final season.
Jones, who turns 40 next month, issued a statement through the team Thursday saying he will retire after the season.
He has spent his entire 18-year career with the Braves, winning the NL MVP award in 1999. He has a .304 career average with 454 homers and 1,561
RBIs, but has toyed with the idea of retirement for several years because of a rash of injuries.
The Braves say Jones hopes to remain with the organization in another capacity after his playing career ends.
