I have a similar question to the one that the Ox posted. In 1947, LF Jeff Heath leads the team in RBIs and belts 27 homers (highest Brownie total since Ken Williams maybe?) ... and gets *sold* the next year???
I know the Browns were hard up for cash, but .. what was the knock there? I know he had turned 32 in September, but .... hit .319 the next year for the Braves and helps them win a "surprise" pennant. Does anybody know how much cash the Brownies got?
Jack Kramer, Vern Stephens, Babe Martin, Billy Hitchcock, Ellis Kinder, Denny Galehouse, Al Zarilla, and Heath ... could have had a dandy old Brownies reunion at Sam Adams' pub in 1949.
