• 1st Rounder Makes Yankee Debut

    Posted by on August 25th, 2009 · Comments (5)

    Slade Heathcott made his yanks debut (albeit the Gulf Coast League Yankees) going 1-3 with his first professional base hit,  a single.

    Here’s a link to the box score.

    He batted lead off, and played center field…two things we could definitely use in the future. So here’s to you, Slade, we hope you have a very bright career in the Bronx.

      I’ll definitely drink to that. From among the positional prospect corps, I’m rooting for Heathcott (’09), Adams (’08) and Montero (’07) the most. I really hope they all turn into something special.

      should be noted that J.R. Murphy is also starting off well for the GCL Yanks, he’s 6/15 with 2 runs batted in

      Good to hear. The Yanks have loaded up on catchers over the past few years (Cervelli, Montero, Romine, Higashioka) so it’s only a boon for the organization if Murphy does great. He’s still young and probably has at least 3 years of development ahead of him but you can never have enough catchers, as long as you know what to do with them.

      I look at the Rangers last year and shake my head that they didn’t do a better job of managing their catching assets.

      I can’t decide whether Slade Heathcott is the best name ever or the worst name ever. I generally lean toward the former, but then I see things like “Here’s to you, Slade,” and I think, well, maybe not.

      @ Justin:
      lol, would “Here’s to you, Zach” be better for you?
