NASH. IS. BACK!
2019 Atlantic League Player of the Year and Home Run Leader
Telvin Nash Returns to York Revolution Roster
(July 16, 2022, York, Pa.) — The York Revolution announced today it has re-signed slugger Telvin Nash, one of the most impactful players in team history and a key contributor to the team’s 2017 Atlantic League Championship.
Nash returns for a sixth season in York, tying him for the second longest-tenured athlete in Revolution history. He resumes his Revolution career as the franchise’s all-time home run leader with 94, including a record 41 during the 2019 season, his most recent in York. He also ranks fourth in Revs history in games played (342), fourth in runs (241), second in extra-base hits (173), sixth in doubles (77), third in RBI (232), third in total bases (713), and first in walks (223).
Nash’s 2019 season saw him take home Atlantic League Player of the Year honors as he tied for second in league history in home runs while setting league records for total bases (303), extra-base hits (77), and walks (105) in a season. Not only did his 41 home runs shatter a Revs single-season record in 2019, but his 100 RBI ranked third in a season in franchise history, and his 107 runs scored placed second. He appeared in a franchise record 137 games played that season.
Nash is perhaps even more fondly remembered for his heroics in 2017. It was his go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning of Game 3 of the Atlantic League Championship Series that provided the difference in the Revs’ championship-clinching 3-2 victory over the Long Island Ducks, as Nash was named co-MVP of the postseason on the heels of the biggest home run in Revolution history.
Originally a third-round pick of the Houston Astros out of Griffin (GA) High School in the 2009 draft, the 31-year-old established himself as a feared power hitter during his time in Houston’s minor league system. He first arrived in York in 2015 and earned a contract with the Chicago White Sox during a standout first half of the 2016 season. Nash has mashed 214 home runs during his pro career and has played overseas in Japan and Taiwan since last appearing with the Revs in 2019.
