Chipper Won Batting Title

The Atlanta Braves finished a dismal season with a record of 72-89, but there was one bright spot - third baseman Chipper Jones won the National League batting title with an average of .364. This was also the best batting average in all of major league baseball for 2008, and at age 36, Jones became the oldest switch-hitter to win the title.
