Watch: Jason Heyward Goes DEEP for First Spring Hit
I don’t really want to say “I told you so,” but…ah, who the hell am I kidding? I called Jason Heyward breaking the schneid with a bomb when I put up today’s lineup post. In fairness to my prognostigatory proclivities, I was probably just going to call a homer every game until it happened. But it happened the first time, so that’s good.
Good doesn’t even begin to describe J-Hey’s homer. I mean, he got into one and sent it soaring way out to right. Though the video was taken from the back side, you can see how smooth and deliberate Heyward’s swing looks, from stride to load to…BOOM.
