Chipper Jones

MLB Analyst

Hall of Fame third baseman Chipper Jones joins ESPN in 2020 as an analyst for weeknight baseball, Opening Day and Holiday Baseball telecasts.

The World Series Champion and Atlanta Braves legend first appeared as a guest analyst on ESPN in September of 2019, joining Jon Sciambi and David Ross on Wednesday Night Baseball as the Braves hosted the Philadelphia Phillies.

Jones, a Deland, Fl. native, was a two-sport athlete in high school and chose to pursue baseball over college football opportunities. He was drafted first overall by the Braves in 1990 and went on to play his entire career in Atlanta. In 1995, Jones helped the team to their first World Series victory in 38 years and finished the season as runner-up NL Rookie of the Year.

The decorated switch-hitter hit 468 home runs in his career, was an eight-time All-Star, 1999 NL MVP and won the Batting Title in 2008. When Jones retired in 2012, his career 1,623 RBI were the most of any third baseman. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2018.
