Chipper saves Freeman from snowstorm on four-wheeler

Chipper Jones came to the rescue of Freddie Freeman, who was among those caught in the gridlock caused by a snowstorm that hit the Atlanta area.

Like so many in metro Atlanta, the Braves’ Freddie Freeman was stuck in traffic as a winter storm crippled the area.

But unlike those other victims of the weather — which continued to be a problem into Wednesday morning as many area highways were full of cars, some of which were stranded — the first baseman had a savior in the form of future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones.

Freeman tweeted that he was closing in on 5 1/2 hours in his car, but he wouldn’t be there much longer as he was rescued by Jones on his four-wheeler.

After 11 hours and an unexpected assist from his former teammate, Freeman was back home.

Freeman and Jones’ girlfriend, Taylor Higgins, helped document the entire operation.
