Chipper Jones has spent his entire MLB career with the Atlanta Braves.  That is how he is going to end it.   Jones is going to be 40 at the start of the 2012 season, and has said in the past that he will play until then, and then hang it up.  He is staying true to his word, and announced Thursday that he will be retiring at the end of the 2012 season.

Jones is a seven time all-star, World Series champion (1995), National League MVP (1999), has held the NL batting title (2008) and is the only switch hitter in MLB history to have a career batting average of .300 and hit 300 or more home runs.  The Braves and Jones will hold an official press conference on the retirement announcement on Thursday.
