Larry’s gone limp.
Chipper Jones admitted to TMZ his knees are so bad following seven surgeries the former Mets killer can’t even play in an adult softball league.
Towards the end of his career, the Atlanta Braves star had to get surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee in 2010, tore a meniscus in his right knee in 2011 and tore the meniscus in his left knee the following year.
Jones retired from baseball in 2012 after playing all 19 years of his career with the Braves. He hit 468 home runs, drove in 1,623 runs and had a career average of .303.
As soon as he’s eligible to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Jones will likely be voted in immediately.
The man who was once a nightmare for Mets fans everywhere also chimed in on whether or not Barry Bonds should be in the Hall of Fame. He believes Bonds gets in eventually.
“I think before it’s all said and done yeah, I mean Barry was going to be a Hall of Famer regardless,” Jones said.
While his days swinging the bat are over, he did tell TMZ that he still enjoys chomping down on sunflower seeds and bubble gum.
