As a 6 or 7 year old kid I hated Mike Heath.  Reason being is Matt nokes was my favorite player (just cause we had the same first name) so I hated him for taking Matt's spot.  Anytime Heath played I wanted my Dad to change the station.

Hoot missed the war years or likely would have had a much nicer playing career.  Also spent 20 years as a scout/front office person for the Tigers 1971-1991, I remember his mug in many a yearbook.
