Nissan #ProJackets Baseball Report

April 26, 2017

THE FLATS -- The #ProJackets this week were highlighted by Charlie Blackmon who had an inside the park home run versus the San Francisco Giants and talked about pitching for the Yellow Jackets against the Atlanta Braves in a spring training game back in 2007 on the MLB Network's Intentional Talk show.

Blackmon is in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak, which has included five home runs, two triples and two doubles during that span. He has driven in 15 RBIs over his last 10 games and lifted his batting average to .286 on the season. Over his last two games versus the Nationals, he has gone 4-for-10 with two home runs, six RBIs and three runs scored.

Blackmon was joined the MLB Network's Intentional Talk crew on Monday, April 24.


Below is a complete list of the Baseball #ProJackets in the majors this season.
