Swings and misses

1991 Leaf

Hal Morris hit .304 during a 13-year career that saw him play for the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds, Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers from 1988-2000. He played just 30 games in two years for New York, then hit .340 in his official rookie season with the Reds, finishing third in the National League Rookie of the Year vote. In 1994, he hit .335 with 10 home runs, 78 RBIs and 60 runs scored for Cincinnati which earned him 15th place in the NL MVP race. His best year at the plate came in 1996 for the Reds as he set career highs in home runs (16), RBIs (80) and runs scored (82) while hitting .313. Morris was the starting first baseman for the 1990 Reds team that beat the Oakland A’s in the World Series.
