Chipper Jones final regular season game will be in Pittsburgh on October 3rd.
If the Braves do not make the playoffs, the final game in Chipper's career will occur in Pittsburgh, as the Braves are scheduled to play a three-game series in the Steel City from October 1-3. This series could actually have much more meaning than just Chipper's final regular season games, though.
The Pirates have come alive this year, and if the season ended today, they would be set to play each other in the playoffs as the two wild-card winners from the National League. The club also went out and made some moves at the deadline to improve their team, as their front office believes this could be the first time the Pirates reach the playoffs since the days of Barry Bonds.
Come October, this series could have so much at stake for both of these teams, as each could be fighting for a playoff spot or a division title. Chipper could potentially get a shot to come up big in the clutch to help the Braves make the playoffs on the final day of the season.
