Chipper Jones rescues ex-Braves teammate from Atlanta storm

- January 29th, 2014

Have no fear, Atlanta. Chipper Jones is here!

The city’s favourite son and former Braves star went on a rescue mission Tuesday to get former teammate Freddie Freeman out of a jam.

A traffic jam.

Freeman, who currently mans first base for the Braves, found himself stuck in gridlock as Atlanta received a light dusting of snow.

Jones immediately sprung into action.

Jones’ girlfriend, former Playboy model Taylor Higgins, took pics.

Judging by the serious camo gear, Jones is prepared for situations such as this.

After Freeman ditched his car in a parking lot, Jones brought him home.

Freeman was very thankful.

Probably because he was on the back seat, Chip.

Huzzah!

It’s hard to poke fun at Atlanta here considering the city probably doesn’t have a snowplow budget.

But as this story shows, if you’re facing, uh, severe conditions down south, Chipper Jones is the man you want to call.

Just don’t ask him to clean your fireplace.
