    This year has certainly been the most difficult year in a long, long time, thanks in large part to the novel coronavirus pandemic

    COVID-19 destabilized the 2020 Major League Baseball season, forcing MLB to build a schedule that was about a third of the length of a normal season

    Now that we’re down to the last four teams, it seems a bit more “normal” even though there are very few supporters in the stands and the American League and National League Championship series are played in stadiums on neutral venues

    Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan died Sunday at age 77 from a nervous illness, the latest in a long line of Baseball Hall of Fame members who died in 2020

    Al Kaline, Tom Seaver, Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, and Whitey Ford have all died in the past six months, a strange stretch we haven’t seen

    « Little Joe » has been a big leaguer for 22 seasons, he won the National League MVP twice, five gold gloves, was a 10-time all-star and the second baseman on more complete of his career

    He was also the spark plug for back-to-back Cincinnati Reds World Series champions in 1975 and 1976, and that says a lot considering the Big Red Machine was powered by Pete Rose, Johnny Bench and Tony. Perez

    After his years in the game, Morgan entered the broadcast booth in 1985 and became one of baseball’s top television analysts.
