Oh Baby, I Knew We Were Gonna Love Jason Heyward’s Defense (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs News

Line drive, base hit to right field …


Jason Heyward fields the tough short hop, and rifles a canon strike to second base to cut down the runner, who had to pause precisely because Heyward came up so close on the liner. That might be a risky play for another outfielder, but Heyward is smooth with the glove. And then the throw was just a thing of beauty, right down to his full-body momentum dive.

I can’t wait to watch this guy all year.
