Chipper

I never liked Chipper Jones when he played for the Braves. But I saw his autobiography at the Ankeny library and decided to read it. 

I’m enjoying it so far, learning a lot about the behind-the-scenes life of a baseball star. 

My favorite anecdote so far — Chipper and his dad were big Dodger fans when Chipper was growing up. Their home in Florida wasn’t far from the Dodgers’ longtime spring training facility in Vero Beach.
