Meggie Zahneis: Chipper Jones reflects on career, offers advice to kids | MLB.com - Chipper Jones says his baseball idols growing up were Cal Ripken Jr. and Mickey Mantle. "I came up as a shortstop, so I wanted to emulate who I thought was the best shortstop in the game. And Cal Ripken was it.

But now, Jones is the one baseball stars of tomorrow -- and today -- look up to.
