Joe Morgan (with the Cincinnati Reds in 1977)


American left-hitting/right-throwing second baseman in Major League Baseball (MLB) who played for the Houston Colt .45's / Astros (1963–1971), Cincinnati Reds (1972–1979), Houston Astros (1980), San Francisco Giants (1981–1982), Philadelphia Phillies (1983) and Oakland Athletics (1984).

He won two World Series championships with the Reds in 1975 and 1976 and was also named the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) in each of those years. Considered one of the greatest second basemen of all-time, Morgan was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990.

After retiring as an active player, Morgan became a baseball broadcaster for the Reds, Giants, and ESPN, as well as a stint in the mid-to-late '90's on NBC's post-season telecasts, teamed with Bob Costas and Bob Uecker. He hosted a weekly nationally-syndicated radio show on Sports USA, while serving as a special advisor to the Reds.

In 2015, Morgan was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome, which developed into leukemia. He received a bone marrow transplant from one of his daughters. Morgan died on 11 October 2020, less than a month after his 77th birthday at his home in Danville, California. He suffered from a non-specified polyneuropathy in the time leading up to his death.
