While Joe Morgan only spent one season of his Hall of Fame career in Philadelphia, he left a mark that won’t soon be forgotten. His magnificent September of 1983, when he batted .337 with a 1.045 OPS, was a major factor in the Phillies’ going 22-7 that month to overtake the Pittsburgh Pirates in the division en route to the National League pennant.

The Phillies send their condolences to the Morgan family.
