Miffed Braves Made Chipper Jones Throw First Pitch to the Mascot

Tuesday October 8th, 2013

Division Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves - Game One

Chipper Jones threw out the first pitch in Game 1 of the NLDS to the Braves' mascot, after he angered the Braves players by picking the Dodgers to win their NLDS series. Well, he was right.

Knowing these Braves, it's surprising Brian McCann didn't go out to catch the pitch, then angrily confront Jones at home plate.
