Join the American Baseball Foundation Inc. for its 19th annual Lead Off Dinner scheduled for Friday, January 31st, 2020.

Dinner History

Andrew Jones played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball with his most notable time spent with the Atlanta Braves. A native of Curacao, a Dutch Island in the Caribbean, Jones was signed by Atlanta at age 16 and made his major league debut at 19. Andrew had an immediate impact. He hit a homer and a triple in his second big league game and had his first multi-home run game a week after being called up. That same year, in 1996 post-season play, he became the youngest player to hit a home run in the World Series and became only the second player to hit a home run in his first two at bats in the Fall Classic. During his career, Jones won 10 consecutive Gold Glove Awards as a center fielder. He made almost every play look easy as he would gracefully glide to make the sure out. Jones was a five-time all-star. Among his numerous playing achievements are a Silver Slugger Award, the NL Hank Aaron Award and the Major League Player of the Year Award, all won in 2005. Jones hit 434 career home runs including a 51 in 2005 setting a new Braves franchise record for round trippers in a season surpassing hall of famers Hank Aaron and Eddie Matthews. He closed out his career by playing with the Dodgers, Rangers, White Sox, and Yankees and also played a year in Japan.

New York Yankee Clay Parker and Toronto Blue Jay Greg Boomer Wells will be on had to sign free autographs for the ABF patrons.
