Well, there’s bad news and there’s worse news. For starters, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Alexis Stevens reports the corpse of a 22-year old man was found yesterday on the premises of Chipper Jones’ family ranch in Carrizo Springs, TX. And it’s pretty frustrating there appears to be no way in which Chipper can be found liable.
“He was in a part of the ranch we don™t go to on a daily basis, Jones™ father, Larry Jones Sr. said Thursday evening from Double Dime Ranch.
Jones Sr. said the man, a Mexican national, had entered the country illegally. The extreme heat and the drought would have made it difficult for anyone to survive without food or water, he said.
The game ranch is home to 750 heads of steer, as well as various wildlife. Guides tours are offered at the œhunters™ paradise, according to Web site for the ranch. There™s a rifle range, stocked lakes for fishing, and a hunting lodge.
Chipper Jones visits the ranch several times a year during the offseason and for Thanksgiving, his father said. The Double Dime ranch got it™s name because the 1999 National League MVP wears the No. 10 jersey, and his father did, too, during his own playing days.
