The top prospect in baseball hit a home run in his first at bat, with the anxious crowd chanting “Let’s go, Heyward!” before his home run – in his first at bat at the major league level.
3B Chipper Jones, winner of 15 or so division titles and a world series, said “I don’t know that I’ve ever heard this stadium that loud”.
Responding to a question about how it felt rounding the bases, Heyward replied “I felt my legs but I couldn’t hear myself think, it was so loud.”
Its a good start.
Bravo Heyward, and good fortune to the Braves.
