Andruw Jones was certainly an entertaining player.
The Atlanta Braves legend is on the ballot for the Hall of Fame and may get his chance to be enshrined in Cooperstown this summer.
The results of the Hall of Fame voting will be revealed on Tuesday.
Jones could potentially get the call on Tuesday.
Recently, the former Braves star sat down with his former teammate in Mark DeRosa, who is currently working as an analyst for MLB Network.
In that interview, Jones talked about his chances for the Hall of Fame, as well as what his ultimate career goal was during his playing days.

Jones talked about how all he wanted to do his help his team win a World Series.
He also touched on some of his early accomplishments, when he was rookie at the age of 19.
Jones hit a home run against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 7 of the NLCS, a game that the Braves won 15-0 to advance to the World Series against the New York Yankees.
The star center fielder reminisced about that moment and how when someone told him he was one of the youngest players to hit a postseason home run, he jokingly said that he would hit two in New York.
However, that ultimately came to fruition, as he hit two home runs in Game 1 of the World Series.
Finally, when DeRosa asked Jones if he thought he was a Hall-of-Famer, Jones’ response was simple.
“Why not?” he said.
Jones hit 434 career home runs and posted a WAR of 62.7 over 17 seasons in Major League Baseball
