Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones was in New York City for a Baseball Writers Association of America dinner Saturday night. While he was being honored for his legendary career, Jones admitted to wanting to momentarily make a comeback with the Braves, Adam Rubin reports.

Jones says the yearning was short lived, however, and he quickly went back to planning his vacation to Hawai'i the Braves paid for during their tribute to his career in September.

"I actually have a confession to make," Jones said. "I started to get the itch to kind of go back to spring training last week. I was on the Braves' web site, just kind of messing around on my computer. I was thinking to myself, 'You know what? I think I'm going to go down and get me a workout in, see how everything feels.' I was down there for about five minutes and I figured I'd go to Hawaii instead."

The positive thing Braves fans can take from his is that he at least won't be pulling any Brett Favre unretirement moves.
