Chipper Jones isn’t a young buck anymore. After 17 MLB seasons, Jones isn’t thinking about the things he used to. So this spring, while the younger players are pondering things like how many cars they should buy, where can they hang out after practice, and how can they be sure they make the team, Jones is busy pondering more important things. And in Chipper’s eyes, more important things are things like who really killed John F. Kennedy.
Spoiler Alert: He thinks it was the U.S. government.
You saw that coming, right?
“Having shot a hunting rifle all my life, I personally believe there was more than one shooter,” the six-time All Star said before an exhibition game at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. “The conspiracy behind it is what really intrigues me.
“I’m sure it went pretty high but I don’t know how high. Let’s just say somebody had to put it into motion — and it was somebody high-ranking in the U.S. government.”
Um, ok. Didn’t really need all that, but thanks for sharing, Chipper.
