Jeff Heath

Heath twice led the AL in triples, and averaged 18 HR and over 81 RBI in ten seasons as a regular. He hit a career-high .343 in 1938, his first year as Cleveland’s everyday left fielder. In Bob Feller‘s 1940 Opening Day no-hitter, Heath scored the game’s only run. In 1947 with the Browns he hit career highs of 27 HR and 87 RBI. Bought by the 1948 pennant-bound Boston Braves, Heath responded with a .319 average and 20 HR, but in the final week of the season, he broke his leg sliding and missed the WS against the Indians. Heath remains among Cleveland’s top ten in triples, HR, and slugging percentage.
