ATLANTA — Atlanta Braves president John Schuerholz and former Gold Glove-winning center fielder Andruw Jones will be inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame this summer.

The Braves said Wednesday the two will be inducted in a luncheon on Aug. 19 and will be honored before that night’s game against Washington.

Schuerholz is beginning his 26th season with the Braves. With Schuerholz the team’s general manager, the Braves won the 1995 World Series and 14 straight division titles. He was Kansas City’s GM when the Royals won the 1985 World Series. He became the first GM to win titles with American League and National League teams.

Jones won 10 Gold Glove Awards and made five All-Star teams in 12 seasons with the Braves. He finished his major league career with 434 homers.
