Toughest Man Ever Named Chipper

After a freak batting cage accident in which Chipper Jones ricocheted a foul ball off a metal bar and straight back into his beautiful face, leaving him with a shiner, he was ready to play the very next day.

Yep, he almost poked an eye out, yet he's totally prepared to resume chasing Ted Williams' illustrious 1941 season. Tough as nails, I tell ya.

The Atlanta Braves hot corner was back in the lineup Saturday, going 0-for-3 with an RBI and 2 walks, bringing his big league-best batting average to .409.

In other Braves news, Tom Glavine will be sidelined until at least the All-Star break with an injured elbow. As for the team's other injured veteran, John Smoltz underwent his shoulder surgery earlier the week, ending his season and possibly his career.
