Summary

At age 39 in 1982, Morgan finished 16th in National League MVP balloting and ended the season with a dramatic home run that knocked out the rival Los Angeles Dodgers from playoff contention.After hanging up the cleats, Morgan enjoyed a long career in the booth as an analyst for ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball," teaming up with Jon Miller, radio voice of the Baltimore Orioles and Giants, between 1990 and 2010.As a broadcaster, Morgan was known for his old-school view of baseball, and general rejection for the sport's modern analytics — which was a tad ironic, since those new measures painted him to be an even a greater player than his Hall of Fame resume would show.His highly varied skill set — to draw walks, score runs, steal bases at a high success rate and avoid hitting into ground-ball double plays — didn't jump off a standard box score.But modern measures greatly value those traits.
