Jason Heyward May Be Back – He Just Crushed His Third Home Run in Four Games!

Chicago Cubs News

June 6th.

That’s when Jason Heyward hit his third home run with the Chicago Cubs in his debut, 2016 season. At the time, he was hitting just .223/.318/.314, and we were all kinda sad. This year, he accomplished the same feat on April 24th – a full 43 days sooner. We are far less sad now.

After that homer in the top of the first inning, Heyward is now hitting .308/.357/.477. It also gave the Cubs a 4-0 lead. And I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but this has got to be exactly how he feels right now:

As for the homer itself – which was his 3rd homer in the past four games – the exit velocity and distance readings once again suggest that it was not a cheap one:

Another 105 MPH rocked off the bat helped take a ball with a relatively low launch angle up and over the wall in right-center field. Jason Heyward, stay hot, my friend. You are awesome, and we love it.
