A fantastic night in Atlanta brought with it an appearance by Bobby Cox who threw out the first pitch and a milestone for Chipper Jones. Chipper secured his 2500th hit in front of the home crowd, nodding appreciatively to the fans who have supported him since his first day in the big leagues in 1993. Need I remind anyone that this blogger thought Chipper was done when he was helped off the field last August with a torn ACL? He's headed to the hall of fame, no question. Oh, and they beat the Phillies, that was just icing on the cake! Congrats, Chipper. It really couldn't have happened to a better guy.
