ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves are reporting on their website that Chipper Jones and his wife Sharon have separated after 12 years of marriage.
Since they married in March 2000, the couple has had three sons.
The team's website says neither side has filed for divorce.
Jones announced earlier this year that this would be his final baseball season with the Braves, and that he would be retiring at the end of the season.
