With all the hype surrounding his prospect status and his spring training play, it would be easy for Atlanta Brave phenom OF Jason Heyward to get overly confident and carried away.
By all accounts, Heyward has remained humble and unassuming and has not taken his opportunity to make the big league club for granted.
But with March Madness and NCAA bracket pools around the corner, Heyward may be showing his cockier more confident side!
“I am the King of March Madness”, Heyward was rumoured to be shouting up and down the clubhouse. “Chipper may know the strike zone but I know my brackets.”
Heyward has apparently won every March Madness pool he has ever entered, including 1992 when, at the age of three, he called the 6th seed Michigan as a finalist.
He called both 8th seeds Wisconsin and North Carolina for the Final Four in 2000 and in 2008 he broke with his underdog strategy to pick an all number one seed Final Four.
“I love March Madness”, said Heyward, ” I just love it”.
Heyward’s pick this year : East Tennessee State.
