Chipper Jones to throw out 1st pitch for Braves

ATLANTA (AP) — Chipper Jones has retired from the Braves, but he will still be on the field as the team takes on the Philadelphia Phillies in the season-opener in Atlanta.

Jones is set to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for his old team Monday night at Turner Field.

Aside from a new lineup without Jones, fans will see a few changes at the stadium.

There are two new restaurants at Turner Field, new scoreboard clocks and a new location for retired jersey numbers. The team says it has also improved wi-fi service in the stadium.

Gates open at 4:40 p.m. EST for the opener, with right-hander Tim Hudson on the mound for the Braves.
