Chipper Jones

Chipper Jones

At Turner Field on July 11, 2000, the American League beats the National League, 6-3, in the 71st All-Star contest, dubbed the All Scar game due to the many stars absent from both lineups because of injuries.

Yankees’ shortstop Derek Jeter and Braves’ third baseman Chipper Jones provide the offensive punch with both going 3-for-3.

The 2000 All-Star Game was one of the few occurrences in which the manager of the host team also managed the home team of the game, in this case, the National League (Bobby Cox had led the Braves to the World Series the previous year earning the right to manage the National League).

It is remembered for Chipper Jones’ home run off of James Baldwin.
