Chipper Jones seems to be enjoying retirement.
On November 16, Jones, an Atlanta Braves legend, tweeted out this fantastic message to his approximately 209,000 followers: “Divorce finalized....had great time with ex-teammates and friends last nite. Happy 18th anny, Tongue and Groove! Keep doing your thang!”
Obviously based on that he seemed to be pretty okay with the divorce, but because Jones was only limited to 140 characters, nobody could really know why he was so okay with it. Now we know why.
According to the good folks at Busted Coverage, Jones has landed himself a Playboy model. Per their report:
Chipper Jones has a new girlfriend named Taylor Higgins. Some of you know her as Playboy model Lexi Ray, a “Coed” who specialized in naked shower videos and your run-of-the-mill naked photo shoots. Chipper, officially divorced November 16, wasted little time finding a lovely young lady to enjoy retirement with.
So there you go. Jones spent 19 great seasons in major league baseball. He racked up over 2,700 hits. He hit over 450 homers. He finished with a career batting average of over .300. And yet his biggest conquest in life, interestingly enough, came after he quit the sport.
Life’s a trip like that.
