Great spark Plug type player and as a Red Sox Fan I will never forget what he always referred to as " That Damn Blooper". maybe Joe, but it won a World Series.

A good guy from a GREAT Team -

Re: Re: Joe Morgan passes away

Whitey was a little to early for me, but I heard he was really something, I read his autobiography " Slick" Co written with Phil Pepe, he recounted a story of how a real big Yankees fan gave him the gift of a Ring, with like a rasp on the Bottom and he would use it to scuff up balls and make them Dance.

Ball doesn't stay in the park long enough today for that to work...

Re: Joe Morgan passes away

Man, these were all guys I grew up watching - I was in Junior High School when Joe came up with the Colt 45's in '63 !! He was always a pain in my Dodgers side back in the 70's.

Re: Re: Joe Morgan passes away

I was born in 63 and don't remember Ford. I do remember Gibson a very little. But Seaver and Morgan were known well by my age group. Growing up in Ct all the Mets games were on. Bob Murphy, Ralph Kiner, and Lindsey Nelson doing the games. Good times on channel 9 WOR TV out of NY. First game ever went to was Seaver vs the Cards. Nolan Ryan was actually a Met then. I think he was in the pen.
