Has there ever been a crazier career filled with more contradictions than the one Mike Morgan had? The answer is “no.”
What other player was a high school player brought up too soon… and a wily veteran playing longer than anyone could have thought?
Who else looked like the poster child of unfulfilled talent… only to become an All Star, a millionaire many times over and a World Series champ?
He played along side Hall of Famers, Cy Young winners, MVPs and for some of the greatest managers of all time… all the while bouncing from team to team between 1978 and 2002.
It was a wonderfully nutty career worth celebrating.
And I do so on The Hardball Times.
