Atlanta, and other southern cities, screeched to a halt on Tuesday because of the freak three- to four-inch snowfall in the South. Among those caught in the mess: Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who left Turner Field in the early afternoon and still found himself stuck in traffic nearly six hours later.
Going on 5 and a half hours in this traffic! Atlanta traffic is the worst but then you add snow…woah!!

Enter Braves legend Chipper Jones, who is the former MLB player most likely to become a survivalist. When Jones saw that Freeman needed help after spending hours in the Georgia gridlock, he jumped on his four-wheeled ATV and brought Freeman home. Chipper’s girlfriend Taylor Higgins captured the moment (above).
Freeman was grateful:

As we’ve documented a few times this year already, Jones and Freeman, and their significant others Higgins and Chelsea Goff respectively, spend a lot of time together. From wisdom teeth to engagements to setting the woods on fire, this whole thing is really starting to feel like a reality show – like How I Met Your Mother meets Duck Dynasty.
