Hey now!

It might be impossible to start a tradition in just a second Major League season. But Braves outfielder Jason Heyward is already making a habit out of beginning his seasons in authoritative fashion.

Heyward’s second-inning leadoff homer off Livan Hernandez Thursday afternoon at Nationals Park provided him yet another memorable Opening Day tale. The 21-year-old right fielder used the first swing of his career to belt a three-run homer off Carlos Zambrano on Opening Day at Turner Field last year.

Heyward now has the unique distinction of homering in the first at-bat of both of his first two big league seasons.
