ATLANTA -- The Ozzy Osbourne's classic hit "Crazy Train" blasted through the Turner Field speakers Friday night, for what very well may be the final time.

For 19 seasons, the song introduced Chipper Jones to every one of his at-bats in Atlanta. It was only fitting the song be played during a ceremony retiring the 1999 MVP's no. 10 jersey and inducting him into the Braves' Hall of Fame before his former team took the field against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Jones, who retired at the end of last season, was greeted with a long ovation from fans, former players and managers alike before speaking to the sold out crowd of 48,282 and throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

The eight-time All-Star, who spent his entire career with the Braves, retired with 468 home runs, 1,623 RBIs and a .303 batting averaging.
