The Atlanta Braves are retiring the No. 10 jersey worn by Chipper Jones on Friday prior to their game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Over the 19 seasons of his illustrious career, Jones provided fans with countless memories. With the smoothest and most finely tuned of swings, Jones was a classic player who could have starred for any team in any era, but it was Atlanta that he called home.

Legends of the past are many for the Braves, who moved from Boston to Milwaukee before settling in Atlanta. It is a franchise rich in history and Hall of Famers.

But like Derek Jeter for the New York Yankees, this generation of fan recognizes one player as synonymous with his team. It has as much to do with tradition as anything else.

Chipper Jones was the Braves for nearly two decades.

The following slideshow highlights the career of the greatest player in Atlanta Braves history.
