Don Heffner

Although he played 11 years as a ML infielder, Heffner’s proudest moment came as a 19-year-old minor leaguer. He pitched for an all-star team of ML players against the Baltimore Black Sox, a top Negro team, and beat star pitcher Pud Flornoy 1-0 in a five-inning game. After several seasons as a Yankee utility man, he was a regular with the Browns for four years before WWII.
