In 2005, Nick was named the Brooks Robinson award winners as the Baltimore Orioles’ Minor League Player of the Year.
Nick had 39 doubles for the Braves in 2017 after ﬁnishing with 38 two-base hits in each of the previous two seasons. Prior to Nick, no Braves player in the modern era (since 1900) had reached 36 doubles in three consecutive seasons prior to Markakis. Only Hank Aaron (ﬁve) and Chipper Jones (four) have more 36-double seasons over their entire Braves career. He is one of six players in the majors with at least 35 doubles in each of the last three seasons (2015-17) and one of just three NL players (also Daniel Murphy and Nolan Arenado). Nick played in 160 games in ’17, the sixth time in his 12-year big-league career in which he has appeared in as many as 160 games. His fourth-inning single on August 3, 2017 vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers was the 2,000th hit of his career and he is the only active player with at least 2,000 hits and no more than 12 seasons played. In 2015, Nick set a major-league record for most consecutive errorless games by an outfielder with 398. With the Baltimore Orioles, he was twice named a Rawlings Gold Glove award winner among American League outfielders (in 2011 and 2014).
In 2014 with the Baltimore Orioles, Nick surpassed Cal Ripken Jr. (702) as the all-time hit leader at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
