General Information
Alfred Michael Heist was an American professional baseball player, coach and scout. After a long career in the Pacific Coast League of the 1950s, the outfielder made his Major League debut at the age of 32 and appeared in 177 big-league games for the Chicago Cubs and the Houston Colt .45s. He threw and batted right-handed, stood 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighed 185 pounds. Heist was born in Brooklyn, New York, and signed with the St. Louis Browns in 1949. Acquired by the Triple-A Sacramento Solons in 1955, he played almost six full seasons in California's capital before being traded to the Cubs on July 15, 1960. Two days later, he made his first Major League appearance, starting in center field against the St. Louis Cardinals and batting sixth in the lineup against right-hander Larry Jackson. In the seventh inning, he collected his first big-league hit, a single, one of four Chicago hits in a 6?0 shutout loss. He appeared in 41 games for the Cubs in 1960, then in 109 more games in 1961, starting 82 out of the team's 154 games played in center field, 26 more than the Cubs' former regular, Baseball Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn.
