Chipper Jones Quotes
Here is a Chipper quote that sums up his statistics and how he played the game. Jones said, "We can bunt guys over. But we're built on power. That's American baseball.” But in contrast to that statement he also said that he felt his proudest accomplishments was that he had more walks than strikeouts. About his percentage numbers? “I was always of the belief that if you go up there and you’re the toughest out possible every single time you walk up to the plate, the numbers are going to take care of themselves,’’ he said. About entering the MLB Baseball Hall of Fame? “This is day that’s going to change my life forever. We have a handful of those during our lifetime, transcendent moments that just change your life forever. Today was certainly one of them.’’
