Utility-infielder Adam Heether starts the 2010 season with the Brew Crew

February 28, 2010

Adam Heather

One of the brightest lights in the Nashville Sounds 2009 season was the play of Adam Heether. The 28 year old Californian batted an impressive .293 in 112 games for the Sounds in 2009. He was consistent and had a knack for the timely double and occasional home run. He had 29 doubles to finish second behind Katin’s team-leading 133 (in 127 games). Heether’s positive attitude and hard-work ethic yielded a call up to the majors in November.

The Brewers’ web site says:

Heether . . . .  could be a right-handed utility option for the Brewers next season because he can play any infield position and also saw action in left field in 2009. He spent most of the year at Triple-A Nashville, batting .293 with 16 home runs, 59 RBIs and an outstanding .400 on-base percentage.

To hone his skills even further prior to starting with the Brewers this season he played in the Venezuelan Winter League. It is unsure how much playing time Heether will get with the Brewers this season but it is likely that he could fill in at a variety of positions, from the infield to the outfield.

Adam was invited by the Brewers recently “to accompany the team to Los Angeles for exhibition games and then to San Francisco for a workout ahead of Opening Day.”

This will be Adam’s first time to break into the majors, and could not have happened to a finer young man.  Congrats Adam!
