Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"As a 20-year-old rookie outfielder with the St. Louis Cardinals, Cliff Heathcote lost a fly ball in the sun. The descending sphere caught him on the top of his head and caromed away. The unfortunate incident brought Heathcote a nickname that lasted throughout his career — 'Rubberhead.' The fans taunted him with the name, often shouting choruses of 'Rubberhead!' as he jogged to his position in the field. Despite the early mishap, Cliff developed into an excellent outfielder, showing good speed and a strong arm. In 1920 he topped the National League in assists, in 1925 he led in doubt plays, and in 1926 led in both Des and fielding average." - The Sporting News (Conlon Collection Baseball Card #1058. Megacards, Inc. 1994)

Clifton Earl Heathcote was a Major League Baseball player for the St. Louis Cardinals (1918–1922), Chicago Cubs (1922–1930), Cincinnati Reds (1931–1932) and Philadelphia Phillies (1932). Cliff, as he was commonly known, was the first Cardinals left-handed hitter to hit for the cycle ( June 13, 1918 ) !

Did you know that Cliff Heathcote, on May 30, 1922, was traded for Max Flack after playing Game 1 of doubleheader, then literally removed his uniform, gave it to Flack , who did the same, then each player appeared in Game 2 with their new team?

Cliff Heathcote, on August 25, 1922 , shortly after that unique trade, went 5-for-5 at the plate and scored five runs (the leading run scorer from either team this historic day). The Cubs won a "close" game that day, scoring 26 runs , versus the Philadelphia Phillies , who "only" scored 23 runs . A still-standing Major League record for Most Runs Scored in a Game by Two Teams Record !
