Happy birthday to Atlanta Braves right fielder Jason Heyward. Jason turns 25-years-old today (August 9th).
This is JHey’s fifth season in the MLB and is having a successful season so far. He’s batting a slash line of .271/.357/.395 in 2014.
During his rookie season in 2010, Heyward hit a home run on his birthday. In the four seasons, he’s only played on his birthday twice. He went 2-4 with a double in 2013, an off-day in 2012, in 2011 he didn’t start but Heyward came in during the 11th inning and didn’t have an at-bat, and in 2010 Jason went 1-3 with the homer.
JHey has heated up again this season after the All-Star break and we’re hoping he continues being effective at the plate heading into August and September. The Braves are currently 59-56 after the victory Friday night in Atlanta and are 3.5 games back from the Nats.
Below is Jason’s career statistics for Heyward. Happy Birthday JHEY!!
