Hayward makes Debut

Posted on: March 2, 2010

Jason Hayward plays for the Atlanta Braves, he was selected in the Amateur draft in 2007, Hayward as made great improvements since then.  He is 6’4″, 230 lbs, the man child was only 17 years old when he played his first professional game.  Hayward hit .303 as a teenager, and continued to do better.   Hayward made his way through the minor league system in three years and is making his Major League Debut in spring training.  Hayward is a very cocky man, thats what manager Bobby Cox stated in his interview, “he wouldn’t be nearly as well developed if he hadn’t been so cocky”.  Hayward, is looking to help the Braves win their first NL East in four years after winning 14 consecutive. Hayward, won the award “Minor League Player of the Year” last year.  Today Hayward plays in about one hour and hopefully does well to stay on the major league roster.  Hayward is ranked fourth in the minor leagues for prospects, hopefully he will do some damage behind Chipper Jones.
