|Personal Fact of Joe Morgan
Joe Morgan is universally regarded as one of the best second basemen ever to play baseball as he reached the heights of both personal and team success with Cincinnati Reds. In his early career, he was constantly under-estimated due to his small frame, and hence even professional teams hesitated to sign him. Finally, he signed for Houston Colt .45s and made a favourable impression very soon. However, he also had to endure racism during this period which affected him to such an extent that he even considered quitting baseball. However, he persevered and progressed to the major league and became a consistent player for the Astros.
But with time, his relationship with then-manager deteriorated and he was eventually sold to Cincinnati Reds. Here, Morgan was part of a team regarded as one of the best ever in baseball and was a dominant force for almost a decade. Together with other star players like Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez etc., he helped the team win an unprecedented back-to-back World Series Titles, with Morgan being the Most Valuable Player in both the seasons. Morgan himself cemented his credentials as a great second baseman with his powerful hitting and fast but intelligent running. Following his retirement, he has been an active baseball broadcaster and continues his association with the game he loves.
