Henry Emmett “Heinie” Manush (July 20, 1901 - May 12, 1971) was a hit making machine, twice leading the American League in hits (1928, 1933). Manush played the majority of his 17-year career with the Detroit Tigers (1923-1927) and the Washington senators (1930-1935) accumulating impressive career totals of 2,524 hits including 761 extra-base hits, 1,287 runs scored and a .330 batting average. Heinie finished in the top five for MVP voting four times and placing third twice in 1932 and 1933 when Jimmie Foxx won back-to-back honors. Manush was an excellent fielder as well, posting a career .979 fielding percentage and eventually taking over center field for the Tigers as Ty Cobb’s playing days ended. The Veterans Committee elected Henry Emmett “Heinie” Manush to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1964.
