A former first-round pick has a lot to learn about film.

Slade Heathcott was the Yankees' first-round pick in the 2009 draft. He's had trouble staying healthy since then, but he has plenty of talent: even though he'd played in only 129 minor-league games before the start of this season, Kevin Goldstein ranked him as the Yankees' 13th-best prospect.

Littleton talked about his two passions while he was in Boston for the team's recently completed rookie development program.
