One of our family's best friend's named Killian shared his story about meeting Jason Heyward of the Atlanta Braves at the ESPN Wide World of Sports, Lake Buena Vista, FL Spring Training Session. Killian is 14 years old and has played many years of Little League baseball with my own son. Killian continues to play baseball on Travel Baseball teams and his dad continues to coach and develop the love of baseball with Killian and his brother.
During President's Day weekend, Killian, his brother and his dad flew from Atlanta Georgia to watch the Spring Training Session in Florida. After watching the Braves take fly balls and batting practice from the field, they had the opportunity to meet Jason Heyward (right fielder) and take pictures and get his autograph. He signed a baseball for Killian and was very kind to sign many autographs for all the other fans. He was a great ambassador of the sport.
Now behind the bat of Jason Heyward who already scored a HOMERUN, the Braves are off to a 2-0 start and tied for first in the NL East. It is very exciting to cheer for our hometeam especially after meeting Jason!
