- On May 30, 1922, the Cardinals were playing a Memorial Day doubleheader at Cubs Park. Between games, Heathcote was traded for Max Flack. Both men appeared in both games that day.
- On August 25, 1922, when the Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies played to a 26–23 Cubs win, Heathcote set a modern National League record by reaching base seven times in a nine-inning game, and set the record (which has since been surpassed) for most runs scored in a single major league game. He went 5-for-5 that day, while scoring five runs.
- 1926: 10 HR, 98 runs, 141 hits, and 33 doubles in 139 games – all career-highs.
