Jason is one of the top prospects in all of baseball. Can you even call him a prospect at this point? Going into the season he was considered the #1 prospect in baseball by many organizations. He made the Braves club out of spring training, and hit a three run home run in his first ever Major League at bat. Talk about raising already high expectations. He was named the rookie of the month for both April and May. He is on his way to being a superstar.
This picture was taken Wednesday when the Braves were in town to play the White Sox. As the nasty storm hit Chicago the Braves were taking batting practice behind the White Sox dugout. For some reason all of the players left the dugout at once and ran across the infield in a pouring rain. I snapped this picture of Jason as he was making that run. I did not think that they would get the game in so I thought this would be my only picture of Heyward.
