Nick Markakis hits home run, signs ball for fan

In the fourth inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Seattle Mariners, Atlanta Braves' Nick Markakis hit a solo home run to deep right field, scoring the Braves first run of the game.

After the Braves won the Game 4-0, the Braves fan who caught Markakis’ home run at the Chop House in right field approached Markakis after the game to get the ball signed.

The right fielder agreed.

Markakis, who hit a single in the fifth that scored Freddie Freeman, went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI on Tuesday.

The Braves and Mariners play the SunTrust Park series finale on Wednesday at 7:35 p.m.
