Indians Uniform Number - 4 Jim Hegan
I narrowed the field down to four players (weirdly, they each had last names beginning with "H" - Heath, Hegan, Hodapp, and Hale) before making my final pick. Each of these guys exhibited reasons to be chosen, but Hegan's longevity (14 seasons), his All-Star appearances (5), his two World Series showings, and his amazing defensive (and offensive for that matter) skills sent him to the top. So, my choice for all-time Indians Uniform #4 is Jim Hegan!
