Hegan grew up shagging flies with dad Jim at Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium, and came up only four years after his father’s last season. Although in only five games with the 1964 Yankees, he appeared in the WS that year. In 1969 the strapping lefthander led Seattle with a .292 mark. A popular, all-out player, Hegan took pride in his defense; he set a ML record by playing 178 consecutive errorless games at first base from 1970 to 1973. He retired to become a Milwaukee broadcaster.
