Ballplayer, a new memoir by former Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, immerses us in the best of baseball. Chipper Jones was just a country kid from small town Pierson, Florida. A kid who grew up playing baseball in the backyard with his dad and dreaming that one day he’d be a major league ballplayer. Jones tells the story of his rise to the MLB ranks and what it took to stay with one organization his entire career with great detail and humor. Ballplayer takes readers into the clubhouse of the Braves’ extraordinary dynasty, and features stories about Bobby Cox, his famous Braves Teammates, and opponents from Cal Ripken Jr. to Barry Bonds. The National League MVP also opens up about his overnight rise to superstardom, and the personal pitfalls that came with fame. ************PLEASE NOTE************** Attendees must purchase the book from Eagle Eye Book Shop at the event to enter the signing line.
