ALPHARETTA, GA — The former home of Atlanta Braves legend Chipper Jones is on the market, and offers endless ways to be entertained from a batting cage, pool, outdoor kitchen, wine cellar and 3-story library. The asking price is $3.75 million.
Jones, the switch-hitting slugger with a Southern drawl who manned third base for nearly two decades as the Atlanta Braves enjoyed the best run in their history, joined the Hall of Fame in 2018. Jones spent his entire career as a Brave and retired in 2012 with a .303 batting average, 468 home runs and 1,623 runs batted in; he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in the first year he was eligible with 97.2 percent of the votes cast in 2018.
After being the first overall pick in the 1990 Major League draft, Jones went on to become an 8-time All Star, win the National League Most Valuable Player Award in 1999 and earn the Major League batting title in 2008 with a .364 average.
His No. 10 was retired by the Braves in 2013, the same year he was inducted into the Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame.
In 2017, Jones wrote a book titled “Ballplayer,” which chronicles the athlete’s life from his time as a teenage phenom in DeLand, Florida all the way through his 19-year career in Major League Baseball. The book offers a look at Jones and his relationship with sports luminaries such as Deion Sanders, Manny Ramirez and Derek Jeter. The book also offers some surprising interactions, such as the time he confessed to his wife that he had been having multiple extramarital affairs.
