Chase Headley lights up Twitter after long-awaited first homer


It's May 12, and New York Yankees third baseman Chase Headley finally has his first extra-base hit of 2016 after he slugged a two-run homer against the Kansas City Royals.

For a player who led the NL in RBIs just four years ago, it seems like a major fall from grace. But in a week filled with unlikely home runs from New York players (see Bartolo Colon and Noah Syndergaard), it also provided lots of Twitter fodder.

Here's hoping Headley doesn't have to wait another month for another big night at the plate.
