Cliff Heathcote was an outfielder who played 15 years in the majors. He played for several years with the St. Louis Cardinals at the time of Rogers Hornsby, and then was with the Chicago Cubs for many years, eventually being a teammate of Hornsby again when Hornsby came to the Cubs.
As a player on the pennant-winning 1929 Chicago Cubs, Heathcote was two years younger than Hornsby, the same age as Riggs Stephenson, a year older than Kiki Cuyler, and two years older than Hack Wilson. Heathcote was the fourth outfielder behind Stephenson, Cuyler, and Wilson.
