Via CBS –
Chipper Jones’ playoff prediction had the Atlanta Braves close to chanting “Lar-ry!”
Jones threw out the first pitch in Atlanta prior to Game 1 of the NLDS, but didn’t get to uncork it to a player. Instead he delivered to the Braves’ mascot behind home plate.
Nobody “volunteered” to catch Jones after he picked the Los Angeles Dodgers to beat Atlanta in four games during a radio interview on the team’s flagship station, according to the New York Post.
This whole thing is very funny…unless you’re a Braves fan, I suppose.
