Event Details

Chipper was a third baseman who spent his entire 19-year MLB career playing for the Atlanta Braves, and all 23 years as a professional baseball player in the Atlanta organization. He is the only switch-hitter in major league history to post a .300 or better career batting average and hit at least 300 home runs. An eight-time All-Star and the 1999 National League MVP, he retired in 2012. In June 2013, he was inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame with his uniform number 10 retired. Born and raised in Florida, he now lives in Atlanta, GA.

 

Families are invited to celebrate the start of Spring Break! Meet Bolt, visit the Kids Zone, get dinner, play games, and hear Chipper Jones talk about his amazing life as an Atlanta Brave and his new memoir, Ballplayer. 

 

Questions will be solicited prior to the event or can be sent by e-mail to: info@bookmarksnc.org. The memoir is co-authored by Carroll Walton, who will ask Chipper the many questions from the audience. General Seating. Rain or Shine. No refunds.
