Henry Emmett Manush (July 20 1901 – May 12 1971), nicknamed Heinie, was an American left fielder in Major League Baseball who played seventeen seasons for the Detroit Tigers (1923-27), St. Louis Browns (1928-30), Washington Senators (1930-35), Boston Red Sox (1936), Brooklyn Dodgers (1937-38), and Pittsburgh Pirates (1938-39).
During his rookie season with the Tigers, he batted .334 in 308 at bats while sharing an outfield with Ty Cobb, Harry Heilmann, Bobby Veach, and Bob Fothergill. In 1926, he led the American League with a batting average of .378 and finished second behind Babe Ruth in the statistical categories of slugging percentage (.564) and on-base plus slugging percentage (.985).
He was traded before the 1928 season to the Browns. In his first season there, Manush batted .378 and led the league in hits (241), doubles (47) and singles (161) and finished 2nd in voting for the American League MVP to catcher Mickey Cochrane. He also tied the Browns' single season record for triples (20 in 1928), set by George Stone. In 1930, the Browns traded Manush with pitcher Alvin Crowder to the Senators mid-season in exchange for left fielder Goose Goslin.
Manush played six seasons in Washington. He finished 3rd in MVP voting in back-to-back seasons and was voted to the All-Star Game in 1934. In 1933, he had a 33 game hitting streak which led to his fourth and final 200-plus hit season, helping the Senators win the AL Pennant. In the 1933 World Series, however, he was limited to 2 hits in 18 at bats against the New York Giants. In Game 4, after being called out by the first base umpire, Manush pulled on the umpire's bow tie and let it snap back; he was ejected from the game. 
He was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1964.
