Chipper Jones has done it all. Throw in there, being a seven-time All-Star, NL MVP, NL batting champion and not to mention a World Series, and you have yourself an extremely decorated player.

All these awards, however, cannot sum up what Jones has meant to the Atlanta Braves in his career with the team.

He has done so much for them, on and off the field, that at this moment he is irreplaceable.

Here are just five reasons why it will be so imperative for the Atlanta Braves to keep Chipper Jones around, even after he retires from playing in the MLB.
