The Durham Bulls, the triple A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays in the

Internationl League, have announced they will officially retire Chipper Jones No.10 jersey before their game with the Charlotte Knights on August 20.
Jones, who will have his No.10 jersey retired by the Braves Friday night before their game with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Turner Field, played 70 games for the Bulls in 1992. The Bulls were a Class A affiliate of the Braves from 1980-1997. The Bulls became a triple A affiliate in 1998.
Jones played 19 years with the Braves. He helped guide them to 11 straight National League East division titles from 1995-2005 and the 1995 World Series title.
Jones hit .277 with four home runs and 31 RBI with the Bulls when he was 20 years old. The former third baseman retired last season and will join Joe Morgan (18), Bill Evers (20) and Crash Davis’ No. 8 from the movie “Bull Durham” as the only former Bulls players to have their numbers retired. Jones will attend the ceremony at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
