Columbus Crew have signed forward Tom Heinemann.
Heinemann played the last two seasons with the Charleston Battery after earning a contract following the 2009 USL Showcase.
Heinemann scored eight goals and added seven assists in 2010 as he helped the Battery win the USL2 Championship.

A Rockhurst University product, Heinemann joined the Battery following a strong showing at the 2009 USL Showcase. Heinemann scored twice in his rookie season but came into his own in 2010 earning USL All-League First Team honors in addition to being named the USL2 Championship game MVP.
