Joe Morgan, 2B
Career: 1963-84, Astros, Reds, others
Fun fact: Led NL OBP four times
The 1964 Houston Colt .45s lost 96 games, but they did have two Hall of Fame second basemen. The one going was Nellie Fox, and the one coming was Joe Morgan.
In fact, it was Fox who first suggested to Morgan that he flap his right arm like a chicken in his batting stance to keep his elbows high -- a temporary reminder that Morgan used until his retirement in 1984. And now they're in the same wing of Cooperstown: Morgan was inducted in 1990, Fox in 1997. --Steve Wulf
