Heineman was impressive and left some speechless. That’s one way to make a name for yourself.
If only he could do what this D-backs fan proposed to him:
That would be epic!!

Heineman, 27, is in his eighth season of professional baseball after he was drafted in the eighth round in 2012 by the Houston Astros. He played at UCLA and is the brother of Scott Heineman, a prospect in the Texas Rangers organization.
The California native is not on the D-backs’ 40-man roster but received an invite to spring training.
