"I was feeling good today," Heisey said on Thursday, as he was back in the starting lineup. "It's a little sore. I took some Advil, and it's good enough."
Heisey learned a lesson from the experience. He'll never turn his head toward the catcher when sliding into second base.
"What was I doing looking back at the ball while I was sliding?" Heisey wondered aloud after the game on Wednesday. "That's one of the dumbest things I've done in a long time."
