Chipper Jones is a man of great change at the moment, leaving the game of baseball with a tremendous legacy and following up an unfortunate divorce with the company of a Playboy model. 

Busted Coverage reports the Atlanta Braves star, who just put the finishing touches on his career, is maneuvering rather nicely into retirement. 

For those uninitiated, Jones had his divorce from Sharon Logonov, his second marriage, finalized in November—news of which was delivered with this heartfelt tweet:

Divorce finalized....had great time with ex-teammates and friends last nite. Happy 18th anny, Tongue and Groove! Keep doing your thang!

In the same month, Jones brought to a close an amazing 18-year career with the Atlanta Braves. The Hall of Fame should be his final stop, but first he has some places to go and people to see—and he'll have a Playboy model to accompany him. 

Here are a few pictures of the happy couple:

As for the particulars, Busted Coverage has this colorful description of where you may have seen this Taylor Higgins character:

Chipper Jones has a new girlfriend named Taylor Higgins. Some of you know her as Playboy model Lexi Ray, a “Coed” who specialized in naked shower videos and your run-of-the-mill naked photo shoots.

Jones was married to Logonov for 12 years and has three sons with her. The 40-year-old has another son from a previous relationship, precisely the one that broke up his first marriage

It seems retirement isn't going to be all golf games and early dinners for Larry Jones Jr.
