Who is Aaron Michael Heilman?

Who is Aaron Michael Heilman? Heilman is an American professional baseball player and pitcher for the Chicago Cubs in Major League Baseball (MLB). Heilman was drafted by the New York Mets out of Notre Dame in 2001. He came up through the Mets system as a starting pitcher but was converted to a relief pitcher in 2005. After the 2008 season, Heilman was traded to the Seattle Mariners, but was traded a month later to the Chicago Cubs.

Heilman was born November 12, 1978 in Logansport, Indiana and attended Logansport High School,[1] where he was a letterman in baseball. He led his team to two regional titles, and as a senior, was a team M.V.P. and an All-State selection. Heilman graduated from Logansport High School in 1997.[1]

After a successful college career at the University of Notre Dame, he was selected by the New York Mets in the first round of the 2001 amateur draft with the 18th overall pick. Heilman was a management information systems and philosophy major in the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame.

Heilman made his major league debut at Shea Stadium on June 26, 2003 in a 6-1 loss to the Florida Marlins.

Heilman's finest game came as a starter on April 15, 2005, when he made a start in place of the injured Kris Benson and pitched a one-hit complete game shutout. However, was converted to a relief pitcher for the rest of 2005 and excelled with an ERA of only 2.18. In the second half of the 2005 season, he held a 0.68 ERA, tops in the league.
In Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS, Heilman surrendered a tie breaking, two-run home run in the top of the ninth inning to Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals, putting St. Louis ahead 3-1. St. Louis would hold on to the lead to win the National League pennant, while Heilman suffered the loss for the Mets.

After the 2008 season, in December of 2008, Heilman was traded to the Seattle Mariners in a three team trade for J.J. Putz.[2] However, on January 28, 2009, the Mariners traded him to the Chicago Cubs for Ronny Cedeño and
