Chipper Jones’ Pre-Game Dance Keeps Atlanta Braves Loose

Chipper Jones has been feeling much better lately, and his pre-game dance in the last two games proves it.

In an attempt to keep his Atlanta Braves teammates loose, Jones has performed a dance in the dugout prior to the past two games, both of which were wins. 

"This game is fun when you're playing well and you feel like you can go out there and do some damage," Jones said. "This is a big point in the season. I think for us, I need to be vocal, upbeat and producing … all of those things. That's what I'm trying to do."

The dance, which involves Jones raising one leg and spinning around while surrounded by teammates, may just become a pre-game ritual now. With two wins to start the Braves' ten-game homestand, Jones' teammates will likely force him to keep dancing.

"I started something I can't stop," Jones said.

If the Braves keep winning and Jones plays like he did Wednesday night when he hit a two-run homer, the 40-year-old Jones certainly won't mind dancing a little bit before games.
