Jason Heyward: Number 22

Ladies and gentlemen, starting in right field and batting sixth for the Atlanta Braves, number 22, Jason Heyward. Get used to the sound of that because you'll be hearing it for a long time (except for the part about batting sixth in the order). Yesterday, the Braves ended the suspense of whether Heyward would open the season in Atlanta or in Gwinnett with the organization's Triple A club. Ponder no more Braves Fans. Heyward will be your everyday right fielder in Turner Field 'til death, or free agency, do us part. The kid can play, the kid is very good. He's hitting .366 for the spring with a .537 slugging average, with a .500 on base percentage in 41 at bats. We'll all enjoy watching this kid showcase his talent and abilities in Atlanta. The best is yet to come.
