ATLANTA (AP) - Chipper Jones has retired from the Braves, but he will still be on the field as the team takes on the Philadelphia Phillies in the season-opener in Atlanta.
Jones is set to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for his old team Monday night at Turner Field.
Aside from a new lineup without Jones, fans will see a few changes at the stadium.
There are two new restaurants at Turner Field, new scoreboard clocks and a new location for retired jersey numbers. The team says it has also improved wi-fi service in the stadium.
Gates open at 4:40 p.m. EST for the opener, with right-hander Tim Hudson on the mound for the Braves.
