The Braves icon, who still lives in the Atlanta area, rescued the team's current first baseman, Freddie Freeman, who was among those thousands caught in the gridlock caused by a snowstorm that crippled the area.

Jones saw a tweet from the National League All-Star that said he had been stranded for nearly five and a half hours in his car. The future Hall of Famer then set out on a rescue mission on his four-wheeler.

Freeman, who earlier this month tweeted that he had gotten engaged, told fans that he arrived home after an 11-hour ordeal. He later said tweeted that the rescue was "a moment I'll never forget."

For his part, Jones tweeted that Freeman "hugged me the whole way home." Jones' girlfriend Taylor Higgins also tweeted a photo of them returning.

While many parts of the country aren't bothered by a couple inches of snow, Atlanta was brought to a halt Tuesday by icy conditions and bumper to bumper traffic that required many to spend the night stranded in their cars, sleeping in makeshift warm shelters such as Home Depot and grocery stores, and forced teachers and children to stick it out overnight at schools. The
National Guard was deployed to Atlanta to help get food to stuck motorists and rescue stranded school buses.

Thankfully, the parents and their baby born in a car on stuck in traffic on the highway during the gridlock are all doing fine.
