Awarded National League Rookie of the Year in 1965 with Houston and National League MVP in 1975 and '76 with Cincinnati, ending each MVP season as World Series champion with the Reds' "Big Red Machine." At 5-foot-7, Morgan was sometimes the subject of gibes, including an infamous remark by Phillies manager Gene Mauch, who railed at his team after a young Morgan got a game-winning hit that they lost to someone resembling a "Little Leaguer." Named to the NL All-Star team in each of his eight seasons with the Reds (1972-79) and inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990. Developed his signature flapping of the left (back) elbow while batting with Houston in 1965. Hitting coach Nellie Fox taught it as a reminder to keep the elbow up during the swing. Stole at least 60 bases and hit over 25 home runs in 1973, and again in '76, becoming the first player to reach both totals in one season. Keyed memorable Septembers for the Giants (1982) and Phillies (1983) near the end of his career, hitting a dramatic home run on the final day of the 1982 season to beat the rival Dodgers and prevent them from tying the Braves for the NL West title. Began his career as a television analyst locally for the Reds, Giants and A's; and nationally for ABC and NBC, before settling in permanently with ESPN, where his run alongside Jon Miller on Sunday Night Baseball began in 1990. Authored the books Joe Morgan: A Life in Baseball and Baseball for Dummies. Bought a Northern California Coors beer distributor in 1987, becoming the second black Coors owner in the state, after NFL Hall of Famer Willie Davis.
