Atlanta Braves right fielder Jason Heyward is one of baseball's brightest young stars. An exciting power hitter, the 6'5" standout hit a home run in his first major league at-bat in 2010 and was the talk of baseball throughout his breakout rookie season, where he finished a close second for the National League Rookie of the Year award, received MLB Rookie of the Month Honors twice, was named Baseball America Rookie of the Year and was voted into the All-Star Game. Jason’s 2012 season built on his previous success, and he posted career-highs in hits (158), home runs (27), RBI (82), putouts (335) and assists (11). He also earned his first Gold Glove and Fielding Bible Award for his impressive work in right field. Selected 14th overall by Atlanta in the 2007 MLB Draft, Jason began his pro career at age 17, first with the GCL Braves and then with the Danville Braves of the Appalachian League. Promoted to AA Mississippi and then AAA Gwinnett, he was named the Minor League Player of the Year by Baseball America and USA Today before making his MLB debut in 2010.
