Unfortunately,"the Little General," Joe Morgan,77,passed away Saturday due to a severe nerve condition.
While the Hall--of-Fame second sacker's 268 homers,1,131 RBIs,689 SB (near 80% SB success rate) AND 1,865 walks are tremendous stats,my favourite Joe Morgan fact is that despite being my father's size (five-seven,155 or thereabouts),Morgan was the 1976 N.L. slugging average champ,the smallest man to win this quintessential big boys' baseball title. Also,Joe was THE LEADER of the Big Red Machine, and a quality dude.RIP,Joe,you'll be missed !!!!

Gale Sayers, Bob Gibson, and now Joe Morgan... Usually come in 3's.

Despite some ignorant racial blasts and slurs, this country provided and afforded the opportunity for their talent and hardwork to make a good living and achieve many accomplishments.  :police: :banana

I wasn't around for the Big Red Machine, but I always liked Morgan's announcing in the press box.

Racism is nothing to be proud of or excuse,J-Dog,and NONE of those worthies was offered a managing or general managing gig.As another great African American player,Larry Doby,once said,"Baseball lets us (POCs) ride the front of the bus during our careers.When we stop playing,as far as opportunities for responsible baseball positions,it's "to the back of the bus,boys."

Like Fr. Ciszek, I understood that I was dealing with highly skilled sociopaths, men unencumbered by consciences.

Who's "Bardy," Clubfoot ? And because you're a dumba**,you're resorting to ad hominem attacks rather than debating the issue,the sign of a mental dwarf with nothing substantial to add to a discussion. (And you can't even spell "Brady," whoever he is,dude !!!!)

perhaps if you just spelled out dumbass, it wouldn't be a dead giveaway.

I just have to focus all my efforts on doing what I can in my world at fixing the blown-out crater that this administration has left as our country.
