Braves Chipper touts McCann as new face of Braves

Quote:
Chipper Jones has always been very complimentary of the guidance David Justice, Terry Pendleton and Fred McGriff provided him during the early years of his career. Justice molded him to be the new face of the Braves, and Pendleton prepared him to spend most of the past two decades as Atlanta's third baseman.

Now with Jones preparing to retire at the end of this season, the Braves will soon have both a new third baseman and a new leader who will provide the organization a new identity as it moves past the Chipper years.

"Brian McCann is solely going to be the face of this franchise starting this year," Jones said. "He's a great kid. He's a great player, and he's the kind of guy you want to build a ballclub around. It would be sad to see him go somewhere else. Unfortunately, the business of baseball and economics of baseball may not allow it. We'll have to see."

McCann is a great choice to turn the reigns over to in Atlanta.
