 Biographical Information
Hal Morris was one of only three players (and statistically the best) from the 8th Round of the 1986 draft to ever play in the big leagues. He had a very odd hitting style, taking two steps small steps toward the pitcher as the pitch was being delivered. It worked, though, as he averaged .304/.361/.433 over his 13 major league seasons. Primarily a first baseman, his season high for home runs was 16 for the 1996 Reds.
