Jason Heyward - Opening Day 2010

Jason Heyward – Opening Day 2010

On Opening Day, March 31, 2011, versus the Washington Nationals, right-fielder Jason Heyward launched a home run in his first at-bat of the season.

Combined with his first at-bat home run on Opening Day of 2010, Heyward became just the second player in major league history to hit a home run on his first at-bat in his first two Opening Day games.

The other player was Kaz Matsui who did the feat in 2004 and 2005.
