Mack Jones

Biography:Mack Jones (November 6, 1938 - June 8, 2004), nicknamed "Mack The Knife", was a MLB left fielder who played for the Milwaukee & Atlanta Braves (1961-67), Cincinnati Reds (1968) and Montreal Expos (1969-71). He batted left-handed and threw right-handed.

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Jones was signed by the Milwaukee Braves as a non-draft amateur agent in 1958. In his major-league debut, on July 13, 1961, Jones tied a post-1900 National League record by collecting four hits (three singles and a double) in his first game.

Jones' most productive season came in 1965, when he batted .262 with 31 home runs and 75 runs batted in. Jones teamed that year with Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews, Joe Torre, Felipe Alou and Gene Oliver, as the Braves set a NL record with six 20-HR hitters in one season. When the Braves moved to Jones's native Atlanta in 1966, he hit 23 homers despite a shoulder injury. In 1967, he was traded to Cincinnati.

In the 1968 expansion draft, Jones was the second player selected by the Expos (the fourth pick overall), behind Manny Mota. On April 14, 1969, Jones hit a three-run home run and two-run triple in the Expos' first home victory as a franchise, an 8-7 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Jarry Park. Jones finished that season with a career-high .270 batting average, 22 homers and 79 RBI. So popular was Jones in Montreal that the left-field bleachers in Jarry Park were nicknamed "Jonesville".

In an 11-year career, Jones was a .252 hitter with 133 home runs, 415 RBI, 485 runs, 132 doubles, 31 triples, and 65 stolen bases in 1002 games.

Mack Jones died in Atlanta from complications with stomach cancer. He was 65 years old.
