Joe Morgan the Two-Time MVP

Joe Morgan was one of the catalysts that helped propel the Cincinnati Reds to World Series titles in 1975 and 1976.  Morgan, a second baseman, joined the Reds in 1971, and he played more games at second base than anyone but Eddie Collins.  Morgan was the only second sacker in baseball history to win back-to-back MVP Awards.  He did it in 1975 and again in 1976.  He batted .327 in ’75 with 17 homers, 107 runs scored, 94 runs batted in, and 67 stolen bases.  The Reds won 108 games that season.  Little Joe batted .320 with 27 homeruns, 113 runs scored, and 111 RBIs in 1976.
