Description



J-Hey's greatest contribution to the Cubs' epic championship was, of course, his Game 7 "Rain Delay Speech." Sports Illustrated writer Tom Verducci described it this way: 

 

" 'Guys, weight room! Won’t take long!' The strong voice that pierced the quiet belonged to Heyward...Directly behind the visiting dugout at Progressive Field is a weight room about 50 feet long by 25 feet wide. One by one the Cubs traipsed in...'We’re the best team in baseball, and we’re the best team in baseball for a reason,' Heyward said. 'Now we’re going to show it. We play like the score is nothing-nothing. We’ve got to stay positive and fight for your brothers. Stick together and we’re going to win this game'...The entire delay took only 17 minutes, but a different team came out of the weight room from the one that had entered it."

 

Next came WS MVP Ben Zobrist's 10th-inning RBI double to bring home the go-ahead run, and suddenly the Cubs were on their way to World Series glory for the first time since Teddy Roosevelt was president! A few weeks later, Heyward made history again by becoming the first ballplayer ever to win three straight Gold Glove Awards with three different teams. His Majestic size-46 jersey features an MLB hologram number linked to the penultimate regular-season game against Cincinnati on October 1, 2016, in which Heyward belted a 2-run double.
