Chipper Jones is a Hall of Fame shoo-in.

The Atlanta Braves’ top pick in 1990 retired in 2012 as one of baseball’s best switch-hitters. Jones, who finished with 2,724 hits and 468 homers, hit above .300 from both sides of the plate.

In nearly 11,000 plate appearances, Jones compiled more walks (1,512) than strikeouts (1,409) and remains one of just three third players - who primarily played third base - to drive in more than 1,500 runs.
