Atlanta Braves great Chipper Jones may be retired, but he is still going above and beyond the call of duty for his teammates.

When Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman tweeted that he had been sitting in traffic due to a snowstorm for 5 and half hours, Chipper suited up in his finest camo snowsuit, jumped on his matching camo ATV and hit the streets to rescue his former teammate.

I suppose it’s only appropriate that the name “Chipper Jones” already sounds like a perfect superhero alias.

Even a steadfast Brave hater such as myself likes Chipper because of things like this.

Chipper Jones, one of the great home run trots in MLB history.

I hope they all feel like Jerks for not catching Chipper's first pitch.

Chipper's like "Oh goodie, I can finally use that camo suit and camo ATV I bought ten years ago."

So now Freddie Freeman has left his vehicle unattended on a road, blocking traffic, for others trying to get home?

@RealCJ10 could have made some money. Hook up with Dominos or Jimmy Johns to do direct to car delivery to keep people fed.

Chipper has always been special. This doesn't surprise me at all, if he had done nothing would have been a shock. A friend is a friend all the time
