Chipper Jones is a long time, one team Major League Baseballer for the Atlanta Braves. After 20 years in 'the show' he's retiring - but he's actually still producing good numbers! This is a quote taken from a recent article reflecting on his achievements, his character and his plans as a more available Dad: "With two outs and the based loaded in the ninth inning, I don't want anyone up there but me. That's the mentality I've always had and that's never gonna stop. I don't care if I'm 40 or 60."
It reminds me of another quote by Rickey Henderson, Major League Baseball's all time stolen base record holder:
"There aren't that many people that run like I do. I think a lot of guys might run more but are afraid of getting thrown out. If you throw me out ten straight times, you know I am going to get up and run again. You know that's my game and that's what I have to do."
