High school career

Born in Dallas, Texas, Blackmon is of partial English ancestry. Raised in Suwanee, Georgia, Blackmon was an outstanding baseball player at North Gwinnett High School, as a left-handed pitcher and outfielder. Aside from baseball, Blackmon also competed in basketball and football, and was named Academic Player of the Year three times.[1]

College career

Blackmon enrolled at Young Harris College, and played college baseball for the school as a pitcher for two years.[2] At Young Harris, Blackmon won 15 games and had 138 strikeouts in 127 innings for the school, and was drafted for the first time after his freshman season.[1]

Blackmon received a scholarship to Georgia Tech, and transferred in the fall of 2006.[3] Blackmon had been recruited by Georgia Tech after his freshman season, but returned to Young Harris for his sophomore season as he had promised the team he would play for two seasons. Blackmon continued to pitch until his fourth and final year at Georgia Tech, after redshirting due to elbow tendinitis. As a fourth-year junior outfielder for Georgia Tech, Blackmon hit .396, hit eight home runs, and stole 25 bases as the leadoff hitter for the team.[4] Blackmon also excelled academically, receiving various honors including being named to the 2008 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Second Team.[5] He graduated from Georgia Tech in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in finance.[6]

Professional career

Blackmon was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the second round of the 2008 Major League Baseball draft. Blackmon had first been drafted in the 28th round in the 2004 draft by the Florida Marlins as a pitcher, and was also drafted in the 2005 draft in the 20th round by the Boston Red Sox.[5] He spent 2008 with the Tri-City Dust Devils, hitting .338 in 68 games. In 2009, he was promoted to the Modesto Nuts, and hit .307 with 30 stolen bases in 133 games there. In 2010, he played for the Tulsa Drillers, and spent the first half of 2011 with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.

Colorado Rockies 2011–2016

The Colorado Rockies called Blackmon up to the majors for the first time on June 6, 2011.[7] Blackmon recorded his first MLB hit on June 8 at Petco Park against Dustin Moseley of the San Diego Padres with a one-out single to right field. He recorded his first MLB RBI on June 11 against Matt Guerrier of the Los Angeles Dodgers, driving in Seth Smith with a 1-out single. Blackmon hit his first MLB home run on July 1, 2011 − his 25th birthday − in a pinch hit at bat against Joakim Soria. He finished with a .255 AVG in 27 games.[citation needed]

The following two seasons, Blackmon spent the majority of the time between the Rockies and their AAA minor league team, as they didn't have playing time for him. After the 2013 season, the Rockies traded Dexter Fowler to the Houston Astros, thus creating an opening for Blackmon to win the center field job in 2014.

Entering the 2014 season, Blackmon was engaged in a competition for playing time in center field with Brandon Barnes, Corey Dickerson and Drew Stubbs.[8] In the Rockies' home opener on April 14, 2014, Blackmon notched six hits from the leadoff spot in a 12–2 win over Arizona Diamondbacks. He homered, doubled three times, and tallied five RBI.[9][10] He joined Ty Cobb (May 5, 1925), Jimmie Foxx (7/10/1932), Edgardo Alfonzo (August 30, 1999), and Shawn Green (May 23, 2002) as the only players in MLB history to have six hits, five RBI, and four extra base hits in a single game.[citation needed] Blackmon was named to the roster as a reserve for the National League in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, the first selection of his career.[11] In his first full season in the majors, Blackmon finished with a .288 AVG, 28 stolen bases and 19 home runs. In 2015, despite a dropoff in the RBI section, Blackmon stole a career high 43 bases while continuing to hit for a high average.

On April 14, 2016, the Rockies placed Blackmon on the disabled list with turf toe.[12] He returned to the lineup a week later.[citation needed] For the week of June 20, 2016, Blackmon was named the NL Player of the week by MLB.[citation needed] At the conclusion of the 2016 regular season, Blackmon was awarded a Silver Slugger Award for the first time in his career. He finished with career highs in batting average, home runs, and RBIs.[citation needed]

2017–present

For May 2017, Blackmon won his first NL Player of the Month Award. He led the NL in hits (42) and triples (five), was second in batting average (.359), fourth in runs scored (24), tied for fifth in RBI (22), and tied for seventh with a 1.037 on-base plus slugging (OPS).[13] He was selected to play in the 2017 MLB All-Star Game, starting in center field and batting leadoff.[14] Blackmon set an MLB record for the most RBIs by a leadoff hitter when he homered versus Hyun-Jin Ryu of the Dodgers on September 29 to reach 102 RBI, surpassing Darin Erstad's record set in 2000.[15][16] In 159 games played during 2017, Blackmon lead the NL with a .331 batting average for his first batting title. He became the first player in history to lead the major leagues in hits (213), runs scored (137), triples (14), and total bases (383) in the same season.[17] He also hit 35 doubles, .399 OBP, .601 SLG, 1.000 OPS and stole 14 bases. The Rockies finished the year with an 87–75 record, clinching an NL Wild Card spot.[18] Blackmon was fifth in 2017 NL MVP voting.[19]

On April 4, 2018, Blackmon signed a six-year contract extension worth $108 million.[20] Batting .276 with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs, he was named to the 2018 MLB All-Star Game.[21] On September 30, he hit for the cycle against the Washington Nationals.[22]

Personal life

Blackmon is a Christian. Blackmon has spoken about his faith saying, "The love that He has for me, even though I don’t deserve it. You know, that grace is something that I try to understand every day. But it’s hard to comprehend! I try and learn more about Him every day. And I just want to represent our God in what I do, on the field, how I treat people and what I’m thinking all the time also".[23] Blackmon is also in a Bible study group with the Rockies.[24]

Blackmon grew up as a fan of the Atlanta Braves.[3] Blackmon's father, Myron, was a track and field athlete at Georgia Tech.[4]

In 2016, Denver 7 reported that Blackmon, despite his Major League salary, drove the same 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee to spring training every day that he drove to school every morning as a high school senior.[25]

Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II
Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II
A Pulitzer Prize-winning account of the “Age of Neoslavery,” the American period following the Emancipation Proclamation in which convicts, mostly black men, were “leased” through forced labor camps operated by state and federal governments.In this groundbreaking historical expose, Douglas A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history—an “Age of Neoslavery” that thrived from the aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II.Using a vast record of original documents and personal narratives, Douglas A. Blackmon unearths the lost stories of slaves and their descendants who journeyed into freedom after the Emancipation Proclamation and then back into the shadow of involuntary servitude shortly thereafter. By turns moving, sobering, and shocking, this unprecedented account reveals the stories of those who fought unsuccessfully against the re-emergence of human labor trafficking, the companies that profited most from neoslavery, and the insidious legacy of racism that reverberates today.

Julie Blackmon: Homegrown
Julie Blackmon: Homegrown
Julie Blackmon has transfixed the contemporary art world with images of her children, nieces, nephews and friends (and their children).   Following the success of the bestselling volume Domestic Variations (2009), Homegrown shows how Blackmon's style has evolved, as she continues to capture the tensions between the harmony and disarray of everyday domestic life. Though her photographs continue to be undeniably contemporary, references to classic painting and portraiture can be detected: the influence of seventeenth-century Dutch painter Jan Steen mixes with more contemporary figures, such as Balthus, Edward Gorey, Tim Burton and Federico Fellini. Included in this new volume are 45 works made from 2009-2014, along with an introduction by renowned poet Billy Collins and an interview by the actress Reese Witherspoon.Julie Blackmon (born 1966) is a Missouri-based photographer who has amassed many honors since beginning her career just a few years ago.

Pale Horse: Hunting Terrorists and Commanding Heroes with the 101st Airborne Division
Pale Horse: Hunting Terrorists and Commanding Heroes with the 101st Airborne Division
Pale Horse is the remarkable never-before-told true story of an army aviation task force during combat in the Afghan War, told by the commanding officer who was there. Set in the very valleys where the attacks of 9/11 were conceived, and where ten Medals of Honor have been earned since that fateful day the war began, the narrative races from ferocious firefights and bravery in battle to the quiet moments where the courageous men and women of Task Force Pale Horse catch their breath before they take to the skies again. Jimmy F. Blackmon writes with a power and hard-hitting honesty that leaps off the page. He has the respect of the men and women of his brigade, and a command of the narrative to tell their story. From pilots of lethal Apache attack helicopters who strike fear in their enemies to the medevac soldiers who risk their lives daily, these are warriors from a variety of backgrounds who learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew through the crucible of war. Pale Horse both honors and commemorates the service of this elite task force from the unique vantage point of the commander who led them in battle.
