DRIVEN: Andruw Jones - The Curacao Kid debuts Friday on FOX Sports South

BY foxsports • September 7, 2016

ATLANTA -- DRIVEN: Andruw Jones -- The Curacao Kid presented by Toyota debuts Friday, September 9, at 6:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports South prior to the New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves telecast. DRIVEN, as with all FOX Sports South and FOX Sports Southeast programming, can also be streamed on the FOX Sports GO app.

This latest chapter in the Emmy Award-winning series DRIVEN chronicles the baseball career of one of the most decorated players in Atlanta Braves history. From an unknown teenager to a World Series hero and 10-time Gold Glove winner, the show targets key moments in Jones' career that culminates with his induction into the Braves Hall of Fame on August 19.

"His career just blossomed and he was a great player," Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox says. "His defensive skills, hitting, base running, he was a five-tool guy who could do everything."

Cox is joined by John Schuerholz, Tom Glavine, Terry Pendleton, Chipper Jones and many others to weigh in on Jones' career, providing unique insight to his legendary time as a Brave.

In addition to the personal stories, DRIVEN uses advanced statistics to explore what a player with Jones' combination of offensive numbers and incredible defensive ability would be valued at today, and if it merits Cooperstown consideration.

"Name another ten straight Gold Glove guy in the past 15-20 years," Braves teammate Chipper Jones says. "And now in this day of Sabermetrics, there wouldn't even be a close second to Andruw."

DRIVEN will re-air throughout the month of September on FOX Sports South, FOX Sports Southeast and FOX Sports GO (FOXSportsGo.com), a free app that provides live streaming video of content televised on FOX Sports South through select programming distributors.
