Former Pro Makes It All the Way Home

ATLANTA -- Former pro Heath Honeycutt had some healing to do before returning to the sport he loves.

"It took me a long time to get back into baseball," Honeycutt said. "I was very dejected and upset that I did not really leave on my terms."

The Georgia Tech alum now lives and breathes baseball as owner of Ninth Inning Baseball in Chamblee, where he trains the next generation of athletes.

"I love every second of it," he said. "I love to see the guys with the same love and excitement in their attitude that I had when I was playing."

Honeycutt played for the Chattahoochee High School Cougars in Alpharetta and then went on to Tech, where he was the only player to start every game in 1998. He was named the Yellow Jackets MVP.
