Chip off the old base: Reds honoring Jones
CINCINNATI -- To honor the career of Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, the Reds are using special commemorative bases for the four-game series. One of the bases will be presented in a ceremony on Thursday to Jones, who will retire at season's end.

The side of the bases read "Celebrating the career of No. 10, Chipper Jones."

"It's unique," said Jones, who did not start on Monday vs. Cincinnati. "It's something I never would have thought of, but it's awfully nice and classy of the Cincinnati Reds organization to do that. It's not expected, but I look forward to getting out and looking at it and hopefully rounding it maybe once or twice."
