- Kenny Mayne, Anchor/Reporter
The following interview appears in the June 14 issue of ESPN The Magazine.
KM: When you hit a homer in your first big league at-bat, what went through your head? Were you thinking about family and friends and your path and being from Atlanta?
JH: Not at all. None of it hit me until a week and a half later, because I was focused and it was game time. Once I get on the field, I'm playing baseball -- and that helps me stay sane when there are so many other things going on off the field. So for that at-bat, I went up to the plate, said, "Let's play some baseball," and enjoyed it. I'll never forget it.
Kenny Mayne chats with Braves rookie Jason Heyward about his childhood, what it's like to be hazed in a Major League clubhouse and his at-bat music.
