Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward is only 22 years old, but he’s a grown-a$$ man. At 6’5″ 240 pounds, he’s an absolute beast of a behemoth on the baseball field. There aren’t many NFL tight ends that could go back on a fly ball and display the ridiculous hand-eye coordination that Heyward did today when he robbed a home run from the Yankees’ Raul Ibanez.
Heyward, regarded as one of the best prospects in the game, is looking to build off a disappointing second season in 2011. He was hobbled with injuries and played in only 128 games finishing with 14 home runs, 42 RBIs and a meager .227 batting average. It’s apparent that he’s been putting in the work this spring to improve, both at the plate and in the field, as evidenced by that grab.
