Larry Wayne "Chipper" Jones, Jr. is an American former Major League Baseball third baseman who spent his entire 19-year MLB career playing for the Atlanta Braves, and all 23 years as a professional baseball player in the Atlanta organization.

Initially a shortstop, he was the Braves' primary starting third baseman for nearly all of the period from 1995–2012.

In 2002 and 2003, Jones played left field before returning to third base in 2004.

Standing 6' 4" tall and weighing 210 pounds during his playing career, Jones threw right-handed and was a switch hitter.

The number one overall pick in the 1990 MLB Draft by Atlanta, Jones made his MLB debut late in 1993.

Between 1996 and 2003, he batted at least .300 with 26 home runs in seven of eight seasons.

An eight time All-Star, he won the 1999 National League Most Valuable Player Award, and the 1999 and 2000 NL Silver Slugger Award for third basemen.

He was the MLB batting champion in 2008 after hitting .364.

He currently holds the Braves team record for career on-base percentage, and on July 5, 2007, passed Dale Murphy for third place on the Braves all-time career home run list.
