Chipper Jones' Surprise Retirement Gift from Mizuno
by Corporate on October 2, 2012
After his career-long affiliation to Mizuno and its products, Chipper Jones was honored by Mizuno with a gift unlike any other he has received during the variety of festivities associated with his retirement, after 19 seasons as a member of the Atlanta Braves. The one-of-a-kind, all electric, Stealth 4x4 UTV adorned with Jones' custom retirement logo was presented to Jones by Bob Puccini, President, Mizuno USA following batting practice at Turner Field. The unique gift was associated with arguably the only pastime that rivals Jones’ love for baseball, and one that he will be heavily engaged in after his retirement - hunting.
In an era when many athletes are swayed from one manufacturer to another based largely on compensation. Jones has focused on quality and performance, remaining loyal to Mizuno and unwilling to sacrifice the superior design and performance of its products. Thank you for being a long time ambassador Chipper!
