Chipper Jones called his dad later in the morning to get the details, his father said.
The Carrizo Springs police could not be reached for comment Thursday evening.
The Jones family has owned the 10,000-acre ranch, located 130 miles southwest of San Antonio, since 2000.
“As the crow flies, we’re eight miles from the Rio Grande,” Jones Sr. said.
The game ranch is home to 750 head of steer, as well as various wildlife. Guides tours are offered at the “hunters’ paradise,” according to Web site for the ranch. There’s a rifle range, stocked lakes for fishing, and a hunting lodge.
Chipper Jones visits the ranch several times a year during the offseason and for Thanksgiving, his father said. The Double Dime ranch got its name because the 1999 National League MVP wears the No. 10 jersey, and his father did, too, during his own playing days.
