Former Atlanta Braves great Chipper Jones threw out the first pitch at the NLDS game 5 to the team’s mascot because none of the players would catch it. Wait, what? Dude is a legend in Atlanta.

Evidently, Braves players were not happy Jones had gone on the radio earlier in the day with the team’s flagship station, 680 The Fan, and predicted the Dodgers would win the NLDS in four games. So no player volunteered to catch the pitch.

Chipper has always been a classy guy and had these tweets to respond tot he Braves and the players who snubbed him. For what it’s worth, he was right in his prediction.
