Player Who Was Not Born When Chipper Jones Was Drafted Pays Tribute

#Braves Teheran: "The last inning, I was trying to get 10 K’s – Chipper Jones’ number.” (He struck out the side in his last inning for 10)

Friday night was Chipper Jones Night at Turner Field; the Braves retired their longtime third baseman's number and much tribute was given. The best/strangest one was by Julio Teheran: Best because he struck out the side, strangest because he was not yet born when Jones was drafted by the Braves in 1990. We're old.
