Hall of Fame Major League Baseball Player. Nicknamed "Henie" by his grandmother, he was a skillful outfielder known as the "Hitting Machine". Manush played 17 years in the majors with the Detroit Tigers, 1923 to 1927, St. Louis Browns, 1928 to 1930, Washington Senators, 1930 to 1935, Boston Red Sox 1936, Brooklyn Dodgers, 1937 to 1938 and Pittsburgh Pirates, 1938 to 1939. In 1926, he won the American League batting crown, hitting .378 and led the American League in doubles twice in 1928 and 1929. He was the first player to be ejected from a World Series game in 1933, when he argued a close play at first base. In 2,009 games played, he had a career .330 batting average, 2,524 hits, 110 homeruns with 1,183 runs batted in. After his playing time, he was the hitting coach for the Washington Senators, 1953 to 1955 and a Senators scout, 1961 and 1962. He was elected to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in 1964 and was posthumously elected to the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 1972. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
