Almost 20 years to the day, Slade Heathcott re-enacts Pat Kelly's HR to beat Toronto, a moment for the ages

In the deep recesses of my head - behind the red-haired girl I had a crush on in seventh grade, and the time I threw up on the school bus - there is a little shoe box of Yankee memories. Now and then, I pull it out and sift through it, just to remind myself of who I am. And now and then, I add a new one.These are not the memories of Mantle and Maris, or Reggie and Thurm - that is...

New York Yankees: Slade Heathcott’s wild journey to the big leagues

Yankee fans got some disappointing news this week when it was announced that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury had been placed on the 15-day DL with a knee injury. To that point of the season, the former All-Star had been one of the Yankees’ most productive players, boasting a .324 batting average and a team leading 14 stolen bases. Add that to the fact that the Bronx Bombers have been...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Slade Heathcott

After a heartbreaking 8-6 loss to the Nationals via a Ryan Zimmerman two-run, walk-off homerun, the Yankees received more bad news after learning that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury sprained his right knee and would need a 15-day DL stint.  As a result, the Yankees called up former first round draft pick Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Once a highly touted prospect...

Yankees Promote a Healthy Slade Heathcott

With Jacoby Ellsbury out of action for at least the next couple of weeks with a knee sprain, the Yankees called up former first round draft choice Slade Heathcott to help fill the void in the outfield. If it feels like you’ve been hearing about Heathcott for a while now, that’s because you have been. […]

Perfect timing? MIred in a slump, Slade Heathcott gets called up to the Yankees

For weeks, I secretly hoped Carlos Beltran would tweak a love handle and go on the DL. It wasn't that wished ill on Beltran - he is a nice man - but I just lost hope for him. I now leave the room when he comes to bat. (I've tried everything; nothing works.) In my fantasy Yankee world, Slade Heathcott would rise from Scranton like Linus's Great Pumpkin, take over RF and play there...

Old Heathcott slayed? “I have been a negative influence, a bad influence, all my life, with how to go about things and fighting the system and making excuses and complaining and things like that. But I decided I was done making excuses. I was done complai

This spring, the Yankees' prodigal son - now 24, and in his 7th year as a pro - played his way onto the Triple A roster. Yep, Slade Heathcott has made it... to Scranton!Tonight, he starts in the anthracite capital of Pennsylvania, the former home of Dwight Shrute, (who is now Backstrom). He's a dad, he's eating right, he's no longer crazy-*******-loco, and if he can stay healthy...

Reason for hope: In his write-up on Yankee prospects, Keith Law calls Slade Heathcott "legitimately a crazy person."

I believe that I speak for the Yankiverse in saying: We'll take him!Actually, Law quotes an unnamed scout, who questions Heathcott's sanity.  Two years ago, the night after a torturous magazine-length feature article appeared in the local newspaper detailing Slade's troubled youth - (we're talking shotguns, booze, abandonment, and living in cars) -  this is what happened when he...

Slade Heathcott & Tyler Austin: Yankees in Making

Slade Heathcott and Tyler Austin have several things in common. Most notably, they’re among the top prospects in the New York Yankees organization. Both are outfielders with the potential to become elite hitters. Each has an interesting back story. They are also different. The 21-year-old Austin swings from the right side and came into the season with a .331 average, and 23 home...
