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.
It looks like after this 2012 season, Jones will finally be hanging up the cleats and calling on retirement.
