Hegan was an outfielder and first-baseman for the Yankees in 1964, 1966-1967 and 1973-1974. Blair was traded to the Yankees in 1977 and won two titles in 1977 and 1978 with the Yankees. Both players were known for their glove work. Hegan held the record for most consecutive errorless games until Kevin Youkilis broke it in 2007. Paul Blair is second all time in defensive WAR for outfielders, and won eight gold gloves.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Blair and Hegan.
