Chipper Jones’s wintertime rescue of Freddie Freeman is now a bobblehead
Two years ago a winter storm created endless gridlock on many of Atlanta’s roads and among those stuck on the streets was Freddie Freeman, who tweeted out that he had been sitting in traffic for five and a half hours.
Going on 5 and a half hours in this traffic! Atlanta traffic is the worst but then you add snow...woah!!— Freddie Freeman (@FreddieFreeman5) January 28, 2014
Luckily his former teammate and avid outdoorsman Chipper Jones saw the Braves first baseman’s cry for help, suited up in his finest camo and hopped on his ATV to rescue Freeman.
He hugged me the whole way home!— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) January 29, 2014
Now this important moment in Atlanta baseball history will be memorialized by the team on May 28 of the 2016 season with a bobblehead featuring the two stars riding an ATV, according to the Braves’ promotions calendar.
