Chipper Jones puts Texas ranch on market for $20 million

Chipper Jones left retirement in Texas to join the Atlanta Braves as a special assistant.

He is now leaving retirement fully by putting his famed 9,100-acre patch of land just north of the Mexico border in south Texas, dubbed the Double Dime Ranch, for sale.

The property has two main residences — a 5,260-square-foot home Chipper moved to when he retired in 2012 and a 6,400-square-foot home for his parents have used as their permanent home for decades, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The property also includes a nine-bedroom hunting lodge, a riding arena and an air strip along with several guest cottages and about 40 lakes and ponds.

Chipper, who lived in Roswell when he last played for the Braves, has found a new home for himself and his wife in Cumming. He is looking for a place for his parents in metro Atlanta, as well.
