Back when Jon “Boog” Sciambi was working as a play-by-play man for the Atlanta Braves, he had a suggestion for Chipper Jones.

Sciambi noticed that Jones, who was in the latter stages of his Hall of Fame career, was swinging at a lot of first pitches, even though most of them weren’t strikes. He relayed that to Jones before a game against the San Diego Padres in 2009.

Jones told him that the first pitch was likely the only time he’d see a fastball all at-bat, so it was better for him to be aggressive. Nonetheless, Jones took Sciambi’s advice.

Sciambi now works for ESPN and called a Braves-Cardinals game Wednesday night in Atlanta. Jones joined him in the booth and ESPN’s production crew was able to dig up the hysterical footage from that day.

Too funny.

Jones said there were a few curse words rumbling around in his head after he took that pitch.

“I let you dictate the at-bat right there!” he said to Sciambi.

However, Sciambi was quick to note that Jones worked back from that 0-1 count to draw a walk. Still, it’s safe to say that was likely the last time Jones ever took advice from a broadcaster.

​There's getting all of a ball, then there's what Josh Bell just did. Bell just hit a massive 472-foot two-run home run straight out of PNC Park and into the Allegheny River off of ​Texas Rangers pitcher Shelby Miller to tie the ballgame.
