LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The always-vibrant Nick Swisher has never shied away from an opportunity to take center stage and interact fans. Thus, it seemed only fitting that the veteran outfielder helped welcome Braves fans to MLB Snapchat Day.

As he exited the clubhouse with Tyrell Jenkins before Friday's split-squad game against the Cardinals in Jupiter, Swisher delivered this message -- and in the process provided further reason to believe he has never consumed a decaffeinated beverage.

Jenkins is an active Snapchatter, who uses the handle brojenks11. Center fielders Ender Inciarte and Mallex Smith took a more subtle approach as they participated in Snapchat day.
