Jason Heyward and the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series since 1908 with a thrilling 8-7 victory over the Cleveland Indians in a 10-inning Game 7. It was one of the most entertaining World Series of all-time, as the Cubs became just the sixth team to ever come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the Fall Classic.
This was Heyward’s first year with Chicago, and there was a ton of hype surrounding the arrival of the one-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner. Despite his impressive résumé, the 27-year-old didn’t have a whole lot to do with the Cubs’ success. In the regular season, he hit just .230/.306/.325 with seven HRs, 49 RBIs, and 61 runs scored in 142 games. It was even worse for Heyward in the postseason, as he slashed .104/.140/.167 with 0 HRs in 48 at-bats.
But don’t feel bad for Heyward because he stunk it up all year long. He signed a contract for $184 million over eight years, he won a ring, and oh yeah, he met his smoking hot girlfriend. Heyward’s been dating Grace Heller for a few months, and now all his struggles at the plate make a lot more sense. How in the hell could anyone concentrate on baseball with this minx waiting at home for them?
Check out some of Grace’s hottest photos in the gallery below. Anyone who wouldn’t be more focused on rounding her bases is a goddamn liar.
