Chipper Jones: 400 and Counting!

Chipper Jones hit career home run number 400 tonight against the Florida Marlins and off right-hander Ricky Nolasco. Congratulations #10! The Yankees Hall of Fame superstar Mickey Mantle leads all switch hitters with 536. Eddie Murray is second with 504. Not bad guys to be trailing Chipper. At 36 years of age, both Mantle anf Murray are in the range of Jones. He has said he would like to play 4 to 6 more years. Chip becomes just the 43rd player in Major League Baseball history to reach the 400 milestone. Also with the homerun tonight he is 3 for 4 in the game, raising his major league leading average to .415. And the quest to hit .400 for the season rolls on....
