Larry “Chipper” Jones Jr. has had his father as his mentor for training him and making his career as a professional baseball player right from his school level. His father was a baseball coach in the same school where Chipper studied. His name “Chipper” was given to him by his father and family who all saw Larry as a young chip off the old block. Chipper played football as a casual sport in his sophomore time. All his dedication and timely involvement in the sport lead to a scholarship being granted by the University of Miami to play for the college baseball team. Chipper has had great opportunities right from his early stages till date and post his college career, Atlanta Braves picked him in the 1990 Major League Baseball draft. Now after retiring from being a full-time player, Chipper now delivers his skill being a coach for Atlanta Braves. The player has had an adequate interest in collecting cars and has a practical collection. Let us look at his collection now.
