On Friday prior to the Diamondbacks-Braves game at Turner Field in Atlanta, Chipper Jones had his No. 10 retired. It will now be placed alongside the retired numbers of other Braves legends: Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews, Warren Spahn, Phil Niekro, Dale Murphy, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Bobby Cox, as well as Jackie Robinson's No. 42, which is retired league-wide.

Here are Jones' remarks to the Turner Field crowd:

Across parts of 19 major-league seasons, Jones accrued 2,726 hits; 468 homers; 549 doubles; 1,512 walks; 1,623 RBI; 1,619 runs scored; eight All-Star appearances; two Silver Sluggers; one MVP award and one World Series ring.

Needless to say, a first-ballot induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame is ahead for Jones, who's one of the all-time greats at his position.
