Chipper Jones Risks Missing World Series for a Deer Hunt [VIDEO]

Chipper Jones wasn’t going to miss the Georgia deer season opener, even if it fell on the same day as game 1 of the 1995 World Series.

How important is opening day of deer season to you?

For future baseball hall of fame third baseman, Chipper Jones, it apparently means a lot. Watch as Jones and his parents reveal a story most baseball fans and hunters have never heard.

In case you wondered, Jones went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts that night. The Braves, however, beat the Indians 3-2 in the game and went on to win the World Series.
