VIDEO: Jason Heyward destroys a baseball against Tigers

New, comments

Jason is ready for the regular season to begin.

While coming home from work tonight, make sure to check in your backyard and at the mailbox for this Jason Heyward home run ball.

Bobby Cox once said it sounded like a shotgun being fired when Heyward makes solid contact with a ball. The sound off his bat on the homer was absolutely unreal, and it's probably why Torii Hunter didn't even take a step back in right field.

If J-Hey can avoid the freak injuries this year, he could be in for an MVP-caliber season.
