Chipper Jones rescues ex-teammate stranded in Atlanta snowstorm
Former Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones played the role of rescuer on Tuesdsay when his ex-teammate Freddie Freeman was stranded in the snow.
About 3 inches of snow fell on metro Atlanta on Tuesday, causing major traffic backups and forcing some major roads to complete shutdown.
Freddie Freeman left Turner Field on Tuesday afternoon and spent several hours trapped on the highway before his ex-teammate and friend came to his rescue. And the entire saga unfolded on social media:
Braves infielder Chris Johnson first made a comment about the storm. Freeman replied.
Freeman then revealed he had been in traffic for over 5 hours.
Taylor Higgins, who is Chipper Jones’ girlfriend, chimed in and offered up Jones’ services:
Chipper then confirmed he had indeed rescued Freeman from the snowy mess in Atlanta.
Freeman tweeted a photo of Jones when he arrived to rescue Freeman.
Higgins tweeted a photo of both Freeman and Jones when they arrived at Jones’ home.
Freeman and Jones certainly shared some bonding time, as Freeman was obviously not dressed for the snowstorm.
