Joe Heving from the Chronology
Jun 11, 1944 - Gene Moore hits a pinch-hit grand slam in the bottom of the 7th off Joe Heving of Cleveland to give the Browns a 4-2 win in a doubleheader split with St. Louis. The Browns win the other game 13-1.
Jul 4, 1939 - Red Sox 3B Jim Tabor hits 4 HRs as Boston sweeps Philadelphia 17-7 and 18-12 as the two teams combine for a ML record 54 runs in the twinbill. Jimmie Foxx and Tabor lead the plating with 7 runs apiece with Tabor scoring 5 runs in game 2. Three of Tabor's HRs including a record-tying two grand slams (matches Lazzeri in 1936) come in the nightcap the first Red Sox player to clout three in a game. He totals 19 bases and 11 RBIs in the two slugfests on an afternoon featuring 65 hits. Boston accounts for 35 of them. Joe Heving and Denny Galehouse are the Boston winners while A's hurlers Cotton Pippen and Chubby Dean are the losers. Making his debut in game 1 as a pinch hitter is Eddie Collins Jr. son of Sox GM Eddie Collins.
Aug 6, 1937 - In a 10-inning oddity Cleveland outfielders have no chances against the Yankees. Feller takes a 5-2 lead into the 9th but the Yankees knot the score. In the 10th Hal Trosky hits his 2nd homer off reliever Johnny Murphy for a 6-5 Indian lead and Joe Heving replaces Feller. The Yanks put runners on 2nd and 3rd and Joe DiMaggio hits a drive which 3B Odell Hale deflects into foul territory for an apparent double. But the plate umpire calls it foul and with both runners scoring the Indians LF fails to chase after the ball. The Yanks argue vehemently and finally the plate ump Charlie Johnson consults with the umpire at 3b George Moriarty who overrules Johnson allowing the winning run to score because of the outfield's idleness. The Indians storm Moriarty (a former Yank) yelling that since the ball had not reached the base the call was the home plate ump's to make and should not be overruled. The protest will be upheld and the game will be replayed on September 15. In his 9 innings pitched Feller racks up an unusual double-double walking 10 and striking out 12.
Aug 12, 1931 - The Giants land highly regarded Len Koenecke from Indianapolis for OF Harry Rosenberg and pitchers Joe Heving and Jack Berly. Koenecke will have a decent season in 1932 before going to Brooklyn. He will die tragically in 1935.
Aug 24, 1930 - New York's Fred Lindstrom has his 24-game hit streak stopped as the Giants lose to the Cubs 3-2. The game is tied 2-all in the bottom of the 9th when the Cubs load the bases with 2 out. With the count 0-and-2 Danny Taylor the runner on 3rd races safely home as surprised Giant reliever Joe Heving watches and then completes his deliberate windup with a wide pitch.
