Heinie Manush
#3 | Left Fielder | Detroit Tigers


Henry Emmett Manush: "Heinie"

     A decent hitter, Manush retired with 2,524 hits and a career batting average of .330 - remember, though, that he played in the live-ball 1930s, and only amassed 110 homers in his 17-year career.  He hit .378 to win the 1926 American League batting title, edging out Babe Ruth on the final day of the season by going 6-for-9 in a doubleheader.

 

     In 1928, Manush hit .378 again, but lost the batting crown to Goose Goslin's .379 mark.  He finished second to Jimmie Foxx in 1933's race for the batting title, but his league-leading 221 hits and 17 triples led the Senators to a pennant.

 

     In 1930, he was traded straight up for another Hall of Famer: Goslin.
