About Andruw Jones Autographed Memorabilia & Collectibles
Bagger of nine consecutive Golden Glove Awards, Andruw Jones
is a famous outfielder of the Atlanta Braves. Born on April 23, 1977 in Willemstad, Netherlands Antilles, Jones has also grabbed a Silver Slugger Award and a Hank Aaron Award.
He was able to show off his talents on the national stage during the 1996 World Series and he was a free agent of the Atlanta Braves at that moment. He was nineteen at that time and was known to be the youngest player to play homer in the World Series. Jones became the Braves’ right fielder in 1997 and moved to center field in 1998. During these games, he always plays in a very relaxed manner. He got his mini-breakout season in 2000 and he also earned his first All-Star appearance.
Jones has enhanced his skills and became an outstanding fielder and a hard offensive player. In 2005, he had increased his workout routine and widened his batting stance. This became Jones’ most productive offensive season. He hit a major league leading 51 home runs and he also brought the National League with a 128 run battled in. Jones is one of the five center fielders to record 400 putouts in a season for six times. He has also played for Netherlands in 2006 World Baseball Classic with two walks in eight plate appearances. He also remained to be the premier defensive center fielder in the National League.
