Chris Johnson Relishes Baseball Relationship with His Father

Atlanta Braves third baseman Chris Johnson grew up around the game, since his father Ron spent 30 years as professional manager and coach following his playing career, which included a major league baseball from 1982-1984.

As a child, Chris was separated from his father much of the time due to a divorce situation, but occasionally spent art of his summers growing up at ballparks in whatever city his father was managing or coaching. A special bond between the father and son developed around baseball, which continues today, even though they rarely cross paths on the field.
