What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Is Chipper Jones a Hall Of Famer?

As much as we don’t want to say it, we may have seen the last of Larry Wayne “Chipper” Jones. The Atlanta Braves said on Thursday the 38-year-old third baseman tore his anterior cruciate ligament, and that the injury requires surgery.

Repairing a torn ACL usually requires a recovery period of six months, which in theory could have Jones ready for Opening Day 2011 — if Jones decides to return. Even before ending this season sooner than expected, Jones had already been hinting this season would be his last.  Torn ACLs are not an easy injury from which to make a recovery, let alone after 16 major-league seasons.

So the question is: If we have indeed seen the last of the Chipper Jones era in Atlanta, is the long-time Brave a Hall-of-Famer? Take a look at his resume for baseball immortality:

  • 1999 National League MVP
  • 1995 World Series Champion
  • 6-time All-Star
  • 37th all time home runs (436)
  • 52nd all time in RBI (1491)
  • 69th all time in runs scored (1505)
  • 94th all time in hits (2496)

You be the judge.
