Chipper Jones doesn’t rule out being Braves’ manager


The Atlanta Braves did the not-so-surprising thing earlier this week by firing manager Fredi Gonzalez after a league-worst 9-28 start. Brian Snitker has gone 3-3 since taking over for the team, but it looks like former player Chipper Jones could be in line for the job.

Jones retired from the diamond following the 2012 season after spending 19 years with the team. He was the first overall pick in the 1993 MLB Draft and it looks like he isn’t ruling out taking over in the very near future.

I have not been approached by anybody officially…. That would have to be a decision me and the little lady would have to come to. If she was okay with it, I would consider it,” Jones told 11Alive in Atlanta.

Chipper Jones will likely be a first-ballot Hall of Fame inductee once he becomes eligible for Cooperstown in the very near future. Will he be able to replicate his success as a player with the Braves as a manager?
