Persistence paid off for this Chipper Jones fan

Jennifer Lee of Fremont, Calif., is such a huge Chipper Jones fan that she's traveling the country to watch the third baseman play in his final season.

After a stop in Philly, Lee traveled to Citi Field to watch the Braves battle the Mets this weekend. While in New York, she brought a sign asking Chipper to sign a baseball for her. Jones decided to go the extra mile and handed her a bat, which goes well with the batting gloves he gave her before a game in 2008.

Lee has already booked a flight and purchased tickets for Chipper's final regular season home game at the end of September. But in the meantime, what does she intend to do with the bat?

"I don't know, sleep with it?"
