It may be a few days since the Atlanta Braves retired no. 10, but Chipper Jones will always hold a special place with the fans. Many saw his speech during the ceremony, but not as many realize how emotional his night was.

"I take great pride in the fact that I made it through that whole thing without shedding a tear," Jones said.

The Braves went on to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks that night en route to a three-game weekend sweep.
