Durham Bulls to retire Chipper Jones' jersey

Posted June 25, 2013

— The Durham Bulls announced Tuesday that they will retire Chipper Jones' No. 10 jersey in an Aug. 20 ceremony following their game against the Charlotte Knights. 

Jones, who played 19 seasons with Atlanta Braves, spent 70 games with the Bulls during the 1992 season. After moving on from the Single-A affiliate into Major League Baseball, Jones became an eight-time All-Star and helped lead the Braves to 11 straight National League division titles between 1995 and 2005. 

Jones will become the fourth number retired by the Bulls, joining Joe Morgan (18) and Bill Evers (20) and the No. 8 worn by the character Crash Davis in the movie “Bull Durham.” 

The Atlanta Braves will retire Jones' No. 10 in a ceremony Friday during the team's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

As part of the jersey retirement ceremony, the Bulls also announced a three-game ticket pack that includes a limited edition bobblehead. The package includes tickets to the July 14, Aug. 10 and Aug. 20 games and costs $24.99. 

The ticket packs are on sale now at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park box office, by phone at 919-956-2855, extension 3 or online at durhambulls.com.

    Why do it before a game with the Charlotte Knights? Charlotte is only 'half way' to Atlanta....a better choice would be before a game with the Gwinnet Braves!!!!!
