In the first year of Major League Baseball’s wild-card round (National League Division Series), the rookie Jones belted two homers in his first-ever playoff game (Game 1 vs. Rockies at Coors Field).

For the entire postseason, Chipper batted .364 over 14 games and helped the Braves produce a 11-3 record against the Rockies, Reds (NLCS) and Indians (1995 World Series).

Charting the decisive Game 6 of the World Series (Tom Glavine’s masterpiece), Jones and David Justice were the only Braves to collect multiple hits.

With this signature victory at Fulton-County Stadium, the Braves captured the only major-sports title in Atlanta history.
