Cincinnati here we come!

A great honor for one of the greatest of all time.

After a lengthy drive yesterday and a bit of rest this morning, I am getting ready to head out of Louisville and get to Cincinnati to see my home team, the Braves, take on the Reds this evening. The Braves have struggled in this series as their offense has gone totally quiet. Hoping they can reverse their recent fortune tonight!

The Reds are honoring Chipper Jones tonight and presenting him with one of the bases they had made to honor Jones’s career. It’s an unbelievable tribute to one of the all time greats and it goes to show just how respected Jones is throughout the league. I can’t think of another player in recent memory that was honored the way Chipper’s been. Bobby Cox received similar tributes in 2010, but seeing this for a player is an absolute treat. It’s been great to see what teams have done for Chipper as he makes his final regular season visits to ballparks across Major League Baseball.

However, it’s going to be interesting to see what the Phillies have in store for Chipper…

Anyways, today’s ball game starts at 7:10 EDT and I’ll be live tweeting from the game, so follow me!
