Two Grand Slams in Two Days. What can I say? The Kid Jazz Chisholm is growing and is putting on a show for the Marlins Fans. 

Until yesterday, all 29 of 30 MLB teams had recorded a grand slam except for the Miami Marlins. What a performance by Jazz, and He took advantage of those opportunities. 

Grand Slam #2

Two Grand Slams in Two Days: 

Making a statement as the Marlins push for a wild-card spot in the National League, there are only twelve games left in the regular season. 

With all hands on deck, the Marlins’ pitching staff threw the baseball well against the national league leaders, The Atlanta Braves. 

Timely and Clutch Hitting:

Also, there was some timely and clutch hitting in some critical spots for the Marlins this weekend, like Luis Arraez,  Yuli Gurriel, Jake Burger, Josh Bell, and Jazz Chisholm. 

Jazz’s two grand slams were clutch in this weekend’s game against a team that has dominated them all year. Hence, in a week when every win is crucial for a spot in the wild-card race, the Marlins got over a big test. 

The final two weeks run for a wild-card spot: 

Now, buckle up your seat belts with only two weeks left and 12 games left to play. This is a ride to the finals, where every win is crucial. 

A two Grand Slam weekend:

The Marlins’ first Grand Slam of the 2023 season by Jazz Chisholm also added three stolen bases in that game on Saturday, Jazz becoming the 2nd player to do it in 123 years.

Now that this weekend is gone, it is back to business. It is time to play ball. The Miami Marlins need a combination of wins because they will only play one team in the wild card hunt.

I am off to Miami; I am going for a baseball weekend.

This weekend’s road trip will be to Home Depot Stadium to watch the Miami Marlins. Watching The Kids hit and run down the baseball in the outfield is so much fun.  

SEE YOU IN MIAMI, GO MARLINS!!!

 

 

 

 

Jeffrey was born on April 29th, 1961, in Nassau, Bahamas to Rejoiner Ann Rolle and Jerome James Francis Etienne. Married to Andrea G. Rolle-Francis, they have two daughters; Janae Latoya Francis, a graduate of Allegany College of Maryland, and Jessica Lee Francis a graduate Potomac State College West Virginia University in Kyser West Virginia. Jeffrey was coaching the sport of baseball from 1980 at the age of 18 years old because he loved the sport as a kid. He started listening to the game over the radio out of Miami Florida in the late 60s and in the early 70s started playing the game locally in various local leagues right up to the premier senior league; a league where all of the current Bahamian minor leaguers played. In 1982, Jeffrey had an invite to a three day tryout with the New York Yankees in Hollywood Florida, which was an awesome experience that is lasting a life time memory for him. Jeffrey has been following the Bahamian baseball players in the minor leagues since 1999 with Angelo Burrows, but found greater interest with the signing of Antoan Richardson in 2005. He also writes a year end review on their play on his Facebook page, Baseball Bahamas, and he has a website with the same name. He has a great following and would love to expose the baseball players to a bigger worldwide audience. He has a good relationship with all the players because he personally coached most of them. His favorite MLB Team is the Detroit Tigers from 1969.
