Chipper Jones catches foul ball during Game 1 of NLDS in Atlanta
Chipper Jones is sitll making defensive plays in Atlanta.
The Hall of Famer was sitting in premium seats between home plate and the first base line during Game 1 of the NLDS between the Braves and St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. In the top of the ninth inning, Randy Arozarena was batting with a 2-0 count and fouled one back. The ball took a bounce and then was snagged by Chipper:

Chipper was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year after playing 19 seasons for the Braves from 1993-2012. He was an 8-time All-Star, NL MVP, and former batting champ. And he still has a glove.
Jones actually threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game:
