Jeff Heath was one of the greatest left fielders in Indians history, playing a decade for the Tribe before being traded to Washington. Heath was a multiple all-star for the Indians, dominating American League pitching from 1938 to 1943. Heath missed most of the year in 1944 and was traded shortly after, at the end of 1945.
Heath was a triples machine, leading the league twice (1938 and 1941), both of which are also among the top ten in Indians history. His 83 career triples are fifth all time among Indians as well. While he was a little unlucky to play a decade for one team and not make the playoffs a single time, he got to play on some great offensive teams and was a huge part of those offenses. In 1938 he was in one of the best outfields in Indians history, along with Earl Averill and Bruce Campbell. This year was also another great year by Hal Trosky and saw Ken Keltner come in to his own for the first time. Keltner, Trosky and Heath were the major forces in the offense continually until 1942. Heath died in 1975.
