Chipper Jones (Hall of Fame) unquestionably finds himself among the top seven third basemen in baseball history — the order relies on debates over the accomplishments of Jones, Mike Schmidt, Eddie Mathews (a Brave), Wade Boggs, George Brett, Adrian Beltre and Brooks Robinson — but he’s also in the top tier of the sport’s switch-hitters.

His 468 career home runs are the most in National League history and rank third all-time behind only Hall of Famers Mickey Mantle and Eddie Murray. The only other switch-hitters to reach 400 homers? Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixeira.
