Andruw Jones

Andruw Jones

Andruw Jones played the first eight years from 1996 to 2007 with Atlanta and had some great power numbers. More than anything, I loved seeing him glide through Center Field and miraculously catch an impossible hit. He brought the grace of Willie Mays to the field for a brief period of time.

He hit .264 with 288 home runs and 860 RBI. He had 1,247 hits, 237 doubles and scored 788 runs.

He made five All-Star teams and won Gold Gloves all eight years he was with the team in the decade.

Consider these accomplishments

The Braves inducted him into the Braves Hall of Fame on August 19, 2016. It was the right thing to do.
