James Michael "Mike" Hegan (born July 21, 1942 in Cleveland, Ohio) is a former Major League Baseball player and a radio announcer for the Cleveland Indians. In 1969, Hegan hit the first home run in Seattle Pilots history. He drilled it in his first at-bat.
He is the son of longtime Indians catcher Jim Hegan. A graduate of Saint Ignatius High School, Hegan began his major league career with the New York Yankees in 1964 and played with the Seattle Pilots, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Oakland Athletics as an outfielder and first baseman. He was a member of the 1972 World Champion Oakland Athletics, filling in as a key pinch-hitter and defensive replacement for regular first baseman Mike Epstein. Hegan was also the last batter in the "original" (pre-renovation) Yankee Stadium, flying out to centerfield as the Yankees lost to Detroit, 8-5 on September 30, 1973. On September 3, 1976, he accomplished the rare feat of hitting for the cycle. Hegan also held the American League record for most consecutive error-less games at 178, until it was broken by Kevin Youkilis on September 7, 2007.
Hegan retired in 1977 and spent the next twelve seasons as a broadcaster for the Brewers. He joined the Indians in the 1989 and has served as a broadcaster on both radio and television. Beginning in the 2007 season, he has worked exclusively on radio broadcasts, paired with Tom Hamilton. Hegan was given an extension and will remain in the booth through 2009.
