MACON, Ga. (AP) - Former Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones and four-time Pro Bowler Hines Ward are among eight who will be inducted into the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame this month.

Jones retired in 2012 after spending his entire career with the Braves. He recently returned to the team as a special assistant.

Ward played wide receiver, running back and quarterback at the University of Georgia before 14 seasons with the Steelers. He was MVP of Super Bowl XL.

Other inductees announced on Friday include NBA analyst and former player Mike Glenn, former longtime University of Georgia broadcaster Phil Schaffer, high school football coach Luther Welsh, former Georgia Tech and NFL wide receiver Jimmy Robinson, and basketball players and coaches Patricia Roberts and Glenn Wilkes.

The induction ceremony is scheduled for Feb. 27.
