Joe Morgan Passes Away at 77

Jon Miller must be heartbroken today. Joe Morgan is gone.

I have vague memories of him playing as a kid. I was just a child when Morgan was tearing it up for the Reds. However, a father in law who entered my life in 1977 was a huge fan of the Big Red Machine and instilled in me how good that team really was.

Of course, I still believe that Miller and Morgan were the best ESPN Baseball Crew that ever was and ever will be. I couldn't understand why ESPN replaced them some years back, but in reading about Morgan's health, now I do. It appears his health started to decline dramatically in 2010. By that point he needed a cane to get around, and climbing on stadium stairs probably wasn't very easy for him.

Would've won the Super Bowl if he didn't get injured early in the 2011 season
RIP. Never saw him play but was a hell of an announcer. I remember him broadcasting Sunday Night Baseball. He brought the voice to those broadcast.
