It’s official. Atlanta Braves great Chipper Jones is a first-ballot Baseball Hall of Fame inductee.
The third-baseman played his entire professional career with the Braves from 1993 to 2012.
A candidate needs votes on 75 percent of the ballots cast to be elected to the Hall of Fame.
Jones’ name was on 97.2 percent of the ballots. Only six Hall of Famers have been included on at least 98 percent of the ballots, according to MLB.com writer Mark Bowman. The all-time record is Ken Griffey Jr., who was named on 99.3 percent of the ballots back in 2016.
