Jason Heyward Wins Dodgers' Campanella Award

Heyward is going to be presented the award during a pregame ceremony on Sunday night. He’ll be accompanied on the field by Campanella’s daughter, Joni Campanella Roan, and grandson, Malcolm Campanella.

After a disappointing finish to his tenure with the Chicago Cubs, Heyward signed a Minor League contract with the Dodgers and has become a significant contributor. He made the Opening Day roster out of Spring Training and took advantage of increasing opportunities in right field that were created with Mookie Betts playing second base more frequently than anticipated.
