Veteran Salts 2B-man Jesse Nelson nabbed POTW honors for his outstanding bat work

Jesse Nelson, known affectionately as “the old man” by the younger players in the Seattle Salts clubhouse, showed his teammates how to do it last week — and in the process the 38-year-old vet beat out all competition for the American Eagle League Player of the Week Award.

He put up a .526 batting average, 10 hits in 19 at-bats, 4 home runs and 11 RBIs. Nelson also scored 8 runs.

So far this year Nelson is batting .281 with 16 home runs, 52 RBIs and 44 runs scored.
