Instead, he put on his Northwest Arkansas uniform, grabbed his glove, and walked onto the mound to continue his strong start in Double-A.



Heasley, the Royals’ No. 13 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, graduated from Oklahoma State with a degree in business management three years after being selected in the 13th round of the 2018 Draft.

Despite the fact that he was just starting his professional baseball career, he wanted to finish school as well, thanks to some encouragement from his mother, Sheri Heasley.

In a Zoom interview with MLB.com on Wednesday, Heasley added, “Shoutout to Sheri.” “Now that I’m done with it, I’m really glad she got on me about it.”

I needed to finish it anyway, and I decided it was better to do it now than try to do it 10 years later. Semester after semester, I just chipped away.”

While getting his first taste of professional baseball, Heasley, 24, took online classes, two or three every semester.

In Rookie ball, the right-hander had a 5.15 ERA, then a 3.12 ERA in Low-A Lexington across 25 games (20 starts) in 2019.

He made a major step forward last season as a late addition to the alternate training facility, where he worked with Royals trainers on his changeup and pitched with other starters from his Draft class like Daniel Lynch and Jackson Kowar.
