 ATLANTA (AP) - Chipper Jones says it was ``weird'' to be at Turner Field for his first opening day as a retired player.
Jones, wearing his old Braves jersey, threw out the first pitch before the Atlanta Braves' opening game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night. He threw a strike to Brian McCann.
Jones retired after last season, ending a career that lasted almost two decades - all with the Braves. Jones said before the game, ``I'm missing it today, but I won't miss it tomorrow.''
He says he's picking Washington to win the NL East and ``it's a coin flip'' between the Braves and Phillies for second.
Jones also visited the Braves' spring training as a guest instructor. The Braves plan to retire Jones' No. 10 on June 28.
